Internet and the Beetle

Brown beetle with spots - Pelidnota punctata

I must say that I truly love the internet.  I glanced over and noticed a beetle clinging to my backpack.  It takes me a few seconds to type “beetle tan OR brown spots” into the search box.  I click the first link and it’s the exact insect: Pelidnota punctata.  Even if I had a full collection of insect guides, I couldn’t identify an insect that quickly by paging through a book.  Internet rules!
