Okay, this one looks like some sort of a beetle. Found it (dead TC, don't worry lol) floating in my pool. Any clues? I tried searching for both beige and tan beetle, spotted, beetle with spots, etc. I give up.

Oddly enough the description says it is one inch long and it really is! LOL OH, by the way it is half an inch wide. ;)

I haven't seen one of those in ages. They were common where I grew up. They were so big that my brother and I would tie a thread around them and use them for toy helicopters.
