Bugman here they come!
I’ve got a few pics of some bugs I haven’t been able to identify. Have fun! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. If you need better res images I can send them. … (Bug 2-1 & Bug 2-2) I found this bug chopping wood out behind my house in the bark of a Red Oak. Based on the face and body shape I’m guessing this is some kind of borer, but I was amazed by the the sharp red color. … I’ve got a lot more and am going to be putting up a nature notebook of all my findings from SW Michigan and my "world" travels. Thanks!

In the future, please just send one identification request per letter. This is a Flat Bark Beetle. It is not a borer beetle, but is in the family Cucujidae. The bright red adults and larvae live under the bark of dead trees where they eat small arthropods.
