Eastern click beetle in Oregon?

Asked June 17, 2018, 10:11 PM EDT

I took this photo of a beetle I had not seen before on the window of my house just north of Corvallis. I looked it up and think it is an eastern click beetle. Do they live in Oregon?

No.
Eastern Eyed Click Beetle (Alaus oculatus) and Western Eyed Click Beetle (Alaus melanops) are 2 different species.
