Moved from Megacopta.

a few suggestions
[1] please crop photos for the guide down just to the bug (the less empty space, the better)
[2] for Heteroptera, beetles, roaches, and many other groups, post the all-important dorsal view first, then add other angles you may have (you can easily switch/reload the cropped versions here as suggested)
[3] there is only one sp. of Megacopta in NA, so pls move this series from genus to the species page
