Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Fire-colored Beetle
Class:Insecta Order:Coleoptera Family:Pyrochroidae


If it's not a Fire-colored Beetle then it's close. This orange/red bug has a black spot behind its head, black wings, yellow striped legs and the males have branch antenna. I have only seem them once and only for about 5 minutes. Lucky for me in that time I saw and photographed a female, male and a mating session.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
