Your letter to the bugman:  Saw this large guy (over 2 inches long!) chilling on our house. I tried googling him but there are so many generic brown beetles it’s hard to narrow him down. Any thoughts?

Dear Vika,
The Brown Prionid is a relatively common summer identification request from the eastern parts of North America.

  1. There are here in Idaho too. Biggest beetle I know of around here.

    I just got done picking one up, but buy the shell, they look like they have some fierce mandibles!
