This is the second time I’ve seen this bug on my lawn. It has no wings & seems to be eating grass. They are a very darkhappy green (almost black) color. This morning I had about 5 of them within about 2 feet of eachother outside. Some of them seemed to be mating. I’ve never seen them before in my life so I’m curious as to what they are.

What’s That Oil Beetle doing with that quarter???

Hi Kathy,
We can’t for the life of us figure out what that Oil Beetle in the genus
Meloe wants with that quarter.  We do have another image in our archive of a pair of Oil Beetles trying to abscond with a dime.
