Click beetle

6671.      This was on my bedroom floor. I heard a clicking noise and saw it was jumping and would make a click noise when it landed. What is it? BRAMPTON, Ontario. Canada

 

Number 6671.  Well, strangely enough, it is a click beetle (Coleoptera: Elateridae). The ‘click’ occurs when they flex their body to right themselves from an upside-down position. Click here for details.
