Caption: Devil's coach horse. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the underside of a devil's coach horse beetle (Staphylinus olens). This beetle is found in hedges, gardens and woodlands throughout Europe. It has powerful pincing jaws (centre of head) that it uses to catch and eat its prey of slugs and other insects. Like all beetles it has two segmented antennae on its head, a segmented abdomen (bottom), and six legs. The devil's coach horse beetle is capable of flight (wings not seen) but spends most of its time on the ground.
