Checkered Beetle

Dear Kaylan,
We identified this Checkered Beetle in the family Cleridae as
Enoclerus eximius thanks to images posted to BugGuide.  Of the genus, BugGuide notes:  “larvae and adults are predacious; adults may feed on pollen, some species are attracted to carrion and ‘stored animal products.'”

Location: Washington
