I could be wrong, but if you want help with the ID, I think the Robberfly is Promachus hinei, and Ailanthus Webworm Moth. Nice shots, you must not be far from here, since you keep posting critters from my area.

Keith: Many thanks for the ID. It is appreciated because I'm not good at it! I'm in Indiana. Lee

This is a Horned Passalus. They always look like they've just had a new wax job to me. :-)

One interesting thing to learn about this creature is it has 17 stridulation sounds that it can emit. Here is a link.

Wow, thanks, Keith! This raises the bug from being just a black beetle to a special and interesting creature.

The link explains that the beetle eats decaying wood. The photo shows it on an old log. I did not notice any galleries there as far as I can remember.

Nice shots, pcs. The first one looks like it is nearly in flight.

A couple of exotic-looking bugs that I found out were leafhoppers. Ecuador.
