Clay-colored Billbug
Sphenophorus aequalis ochreus

Sphenophorus aequalis ochreus
Clay-colored Billbug on the road to Bear River MBR.  I took one picture and then as I attempted to grab hold of
the grass, it slipped and sent the bug flying to parts unknown.  I do that a lot.  It took a while to get him properly
identified on Bugguide.net, but now its right down to subspecies.  Cool.  © Carol Davis, 7-12-2009
