COL Staphylinidae Platydracus maculosus
ca 1 in.
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.
There isn't a Wikipedia article or redirect titled 'Platydracus'. Perhaps you'd like to make one?
