Bug of the Week: Click Beetle

You would think that with over one million species of insects on the planet, it wouldn't be difficult to come up with a new one each week. Some weeks are easier than others. This was not one of them.:-)

I did manage to find this small click beetle, though. I can tell it is a click beetle by the shape of the thorax (the middle segment of the body). It has two spine-like projections on each side.

I could also tell it was a click beetle because it does this when it is placed on its back.

Have you ever encountered a click beetle?
