Beetle ID reply
Although i don't know much about insects other than spiders, I think it is a firefly.

 
Yes, lampyrid.
We all know that "Spiderboy" knows spiders are arachnids, not insects:-) This beetle 'is' a firely, probably Ellychnia corrusca. Genus Ellychnia for certain.

 
vote for E. corrusca
