Soldier Beetle

Pacificanthia rotundicollis

Description:

I came across this beetle on some vegetation beside a pond. It was giving itself a bath and didn't seem to mind that I was watching. I crossed the line though when I touched its leaf, which was when it rolled over and played dead

Habitat:

Deciduous forest - on the edge of a pond.
