and this is totally wrong
Scarab beetle is from family Scarabaeidae and my Hygrotus species is from family
Dystiscidae. So wrong family of beetles and even wrong suborder in Coleoptera
order. Scarab beetle is in Polyphaga and Dytiscids are in Adephaga suborder.
Quite distant phylogenetic lines in beetles.

If only the catalog weren't such a mess, I'd be able to search for marbled
tan Dystiscidae and come up with a correct piece to use.

But this is the only proper bug piece we have, so what other choice would be
there?
