I am not sure if there is already such a topic (I couldn't find it) and I think it is nice to start this on: Insects of the Arid Parks.

We found this one in Augrabies last March has anyone an idea what kind of beetle this is? It is nice to see the "sand" on its back for camouflage

Best regards,


Rob

Hi Goronta, Africat,

Thank you both for your information!
It looks indeed like the beetle has mould on its back.

Best regards,

Rob
