Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Rove Beetles
Class:Insecta Order:Coleoptera Family:Staphylinidae


Often you don't see what you are photographing with a macro camera until you look at the screen to check your settings - especially at night. I may have actually said "Yikes!" While not named Nightmare Beetle, Rove Beetle is a reasonable alternative as they are constantly in motion.

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