This bug was flying inside the house, Manzanillo, Colima, MX
3 January, sea level, temps in the mid-20s C. and tropical
Appeared after dark, flying near the ceiling, then later landed many times on the floor and wriggled like a snake with wings.
It wouldn’t hold still for a photo, so I gently clobbered him with a flipflop, so it’s a bit smooshed in the pictures.

Ship Timber Beetle

Dear Santiago,
The first time we posted an image of a Ship Timber Beetle in the genus
Atractocerus, we were quite confused as it is decidedly un-beetlelike in appearance.
