Click beetles (Elateridae)

Click beetles are so called because of the audible clicking noise they make when they flip themselves over when lying on their back. Some species feed on aphids, so they are a good thing to have around the garden, if aphids are a problem.

I am particularly indebted to Blaine Mathison who has identified the click beetles on this page.
