I don't usually photograph great big insects with color!! I caught this beetle on dead leaves of Palmetto. I hope I got the family right!

very nice pic...
Diane, a very personal request: would you mind orientating dorsal habitus photos of beetles & Heteroptera head-to-the-north [12 o'clock], like on the thumbnail in Yurika's comment? makes me life a whole lot easier, as far as comparing stuff with ref.sources is concerned

Moved from Checkered Beetles.

Thanks =v=
I'm enlightened. Also, fixed it.

and i am indebted!

Priocera castanea?

Yurika. You are a real BugGuide trooper.
