Flat-headed Cone Borer

I found this brilliant little beetle on top of our Sluggo jug in the greenhouse, and he calmly posed as I arranged him for photos.  My entomologist friend Kojun identified it as Chrysophana placida, the Flat-headed Cone Borer, which apparently bores into cones in its larval stage.  As usual, you can click on the photos for larger versions.
