"This is Gymnetis flavomarginata Blanchard. It is native to the SW U.S. and Mexico. It has been in central Florida for several years, so it apparently is established. I received another specimen back in late May from Quietwater Cove, Altamonte Springs, FL 32701. I see from a web search that G. caseyi looks the same, I'll have to talk to a beetle expert about that. But he has told me that the one we have in FL is G. flavomarginata." Lyle Buss
