Ten-lined June Beetle in British Columbia, Canada, June 1998
I saw this bug in Santa Barbara a few days ago
with my car key to show you the actual size
close up frontal view
This bug was sitting on our porch here in Denver... We named it Bugwinkle before finding this site. I didn't play with it as it grossed me out!
found on rose bush, interesting pattern on back, apparently non-aggressive
detail of furry thorax, thumbnail for size comparison
