Megacephala - Large Head - Tetracha virginica

Brought to me by my student, Trevor Stewart, to be photogrpahed. I thought these were nocturnal, but this one was found in late afternoon in a cow pasture.

These are nocturnal. You can still find the occasional beetle out during the day, especially on cloudy days.
