I found a beetle at work today and after scouring the web to try to find its identification I turned up nothing. I work for a factory that gets parts in from over seas ( Taiwan, Japan, and China) but the chances of a bug surviving that trip is slim. We’ve found lots of dead ones but none alive and I am not sure if he was from around here and wandered in or if he came off a skid that cam in.
His bug is about a1/2in long and 1/4 inch wide.and has a unique black and red pattern on back and front.
The 3rd photo is kind of blurry but he has a thin white stripe on each of his legs
Signature: Please help
