Beetle Juice, Beetle Juice, Beetle Juice!

OK so it’s not Beetle Juice and no he won’t show up if you say his name three times.  But this bugger showed up outside of my house today.  He is about an inch long and very ferocious.  I don’t see them this size that often.  Can anybody identify him?  Or at least name him for me!

  1. Ground beetle of some kind, genus Pterostichus or perhaps Harpalus. Submit the image to Bugguide.net to see if they can narrow it down to species.
