Hey! I’m a wildlife student and I’ve been searching for a species from the order Coleoptera to write a report on. I’ve stumbled upon this guy; rather he stumbled upon me while attempting to hide under my bare foot (jeesh!). I’m new to beetles and haven’t the experience in identifying them. Hoping you can help 🙂
This is most certainly a Ground Beetle. Furthermore, we believe it is an introduced species, the European Ground Beetle, Carabus nemoralis. We matched your beetle to a photo on BugGuide.
