I need help identifying this bug. Found in Richmond Virginia on 2/12/17 on a warm afternoon. Usually I can find the bug through the internet, but not this time.
You really didn’t need much help. Most people don’t even recognize Rove Beetles as Beetles. We believe this is either a Gold and Brown Rove Beetle, Ontholestes cingulatus, or a closely related species. We really like the Ozark Bill A Thousand Acres of Silphiums page.
