Insect identification
Hey, sorry to bother you, but I was trying to figure out what type of insect this is and haven’t been having a lot of luck figuring it out. I’m doing a series of insect photos as my blog theme this week, and wanted to use this image for tomorrow’s entry.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best,

Hi Mike,
This is a Checkered Beetle in the family Cleridae, probably the genus Trichodes as pictured on BugGuide. We are not certain of the species, but perhaps Eric Eaton can assist with that.
