Your letter to the bugman:  Hi,
I found a very colorful dead insect the other day which I wasn’t able to identify (much to my chagrin, since it broke my bug-googling streak). I originally was thinking of it as a beetle, but as you can see, it doesn’t seem to have the wing-cases, just an ordinary pair of wings, overlapped on each other to boot. Any idea what this could be?
How you want your letter signed:  A.
