|Chequered Click Beetle Prosternon tessellatum|
|This is a distinctive Click Beetle and another species for which there was little information on UK internet sites. It was photographed in Sherwood Forest at the end of May 2006 and was surprisingly approachable. Belonging to the Elateridae (Click Beetles) P. tessellatum is described as being local in the UK, although this is probably due to a lack of consistant recording, than generally being scarce.|
