Please could someone help me to identify this I had my front door open and it came in my house this is weird beetle insect thing
this post says assumed answered but its not please does anyone know what it is ?
It is a devil's coach horse; a species of beetle in the genus Ocypus.
There are quite a few species in the genus, but I'm fairly sure yours is the one commonly seen in the UK, Ocypus olens.
The thing about your question becoming 'assumed answered': the forum does hiccup like that from time to time; please just ignore it, or change it to 'correct answer' if you can.
Thankyou mike this explains what my visitor is thankyou for your reply and useful information.
