Description

By some miracle I managed to ID this rove beetle: looks like a match for Platydracus cinnamopterus, rufous morph. 12.7 mm. Found in a mulch pile. Held its tail up in the air at 90 degrees when disturbed. Sorry, not a great shot.

Description

Mimics a wasp in the family Pompilidae with dark, purple-iridescent wings. A gorgeous and very large rove beetle. Crazily active, crawling around and flicking its wings in a VERY waspy way.
