I found this guy hanging on my screen door in Princeton, NJ last night. Never seen one like it before! Some type of beetle, obviously. It’s about an inch and a half long, reddish-brown, with a orange stomach. Got any ideas?

Dear Lynn,
It seems we have fielded more than the usual number of Brown Prionid,
Orthosoma brunneum, identifications this summer.
