We know this is probably frass but we're curious to know what kind of beetle it is that we almost got a picture of.


I wouldn't be surprised if we get a species name.

very nice bug... Hylochares?
hope Robert narrows it down a notch...

I am thinking of a different eucnemid...
identified as a female Sarpedon scabrosus Bonvouloir.

makes sense
thanks again, Robert
