Hi there! Lucky you! I think you have found the caterpillar of a very beautiful butterfly. In Germany they are " Trauermantel", well in English they seem to be called "Camberwell beauty". The scientific name would be "Nymphalis antiopa" Greetings from Germany

Eastern Eyed Click Beetle commented on by Chanty180 Virginia, USA9 years ago

Hi! I am from Germany, here these bugs are called " Schnellkäfer", so in English I think this beetle is a kind of so called "click beetles", the scientific name of this one would be "Alaus oculatus", but I am not sure. Click beetles are very fascinating. In danger they can catapult themselves very high, some of them can even fluoresce. Greetings from Germany!

Hi I am from Germany, here I think these bugs are called "Grundwanze" . I have looked it up in a dictionary, so in English they seem to be called "saucer bug" or "stream-dwelling bug". They are very interesting, because they need to be on the surface of water only one time in their lives for breathing. Afterwards they can "breathe" under water, because they have a special system. I think, it is called " physical branchiae"
Greetings from Germany
