It’s a familiar story: a beetle emerges from the wood, kills a tree and then leaves behind a few pieces of bark.
But a new study shows that beetles don’t leave any behind.
The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, found that only one of every 100 beetles left behind a single beetle’s bite.
This one is so tiny it barely shows up on the tree.
It was a rare case, the researchers said, because it was a single bite from an adult brown calliger beetle.
The beetle’s body is covered in a white, white, and black pattern that gives it the look of a camouflage pattern, the scientists said.
Brown calligraphy beetles (Dicerodonta) are the second-largest species in the world and they are also the only ones that are found on the ground, the team said.
The beetles are found in tropical and subtropical forests in the Americas, Africa and Asia.
It has been estimated that about 10 percent of the world’s beetles are brown.
The study was funded by the US Geological Survey and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
