Shiny black, with small white dot like scales on back and the Pronotum has two large velvety black eyespots surrounded by a dense ring of white scales.
Wooded areas especially around rotting timber.
I found this Click Beetle while walking through a trail in a local park. I had stopped to look in a small creek bed at a Bullfrog and some tadpoles when I noticed this beetle on the edge of the trail.
