Your letter to the bugman: I found this little guy scurrying on the basement floor of our house. For a moment I thought it was a caterpillar and was going to stomp on it, but I realized he was not going to become a moth and took some pics. I’m pretty sure this is some sort of beetle but I’ve never seen one like this before! And FYI once I took these pics I let him go outside. I am of the same mind with respect to most bugs 🙂

This interesting Rove Beetle is commonly called a Devil’s Coach Horse.
