Would be very grateful if someone could tell me what kind of beetle this is? Found it dead in my bathroom in Dyce Aberdeen and have never seen one like it. Thanks
Oh funnly enough I asked about this beetle it's ment to beetle that goes searching for crcuses to feed on and often picks up mites so I'd reccomend not to touch it!!!
here's a link!! www.commanster.eu/commanster/Insects/Beetles/SuBeetles/Nicrophorus.investigator.html
As it can clearly be seen that the three last segments of the antenna is orange (and that it's body- - esp the pronotum - is not obviously yellowish-haired), I wont hesitate to call this a Nicrophorus investigator.
I agree! Nicrophorus Investigator.
