Eyed Elater

Dear jw,
This is an Eyed Elater, the largest North American Click Beetle.  The “eyes” are actually eyespots, markings that might fool a predator into thinking the Eyed Elater is a much larger, and potentially threatening creature, when it is in fact quite harmless.

Location: Niagara Falls, New York
