I never knew there were as many types of beetles as there are. I must have spent 2 hours looking for something similar. I finally gave up and called him a Gold Striped Scarab assuming I'm allowed to do that. This real pretty guy wasn't in the pool with all the others but was in the dogs water bucket. Just a fluke or all the rain (5-6 inches) from Hurricane Erick brought him out? He's running around in the yard somewhere now so my fearful neighbors won't have a story of caution to tell. At least we were spared the wind last night and are even seeing a little sun today.
