Rove beetle (<em>Ontholestes</em> sp.)

Rove beetle (Ontholestes sp.)

Larose Forest. Not a very good shot, but it does show the odd "half-shell" look of rove beetles. This one looks like it has lost half its elytra. In fact, its long wings are folded up under this half elytra.

other sizes: small medium original
