Summary:

"With social networks abound, it is no wonder that there is an online space where almost anyone can upload a photo and report a sighting of an insect. Identified or not, such public records can turn out to be especially useful -- as in the case of an Old World beetle species -- which appears to have recently entered Canada, and was recently discovered with the help of the BugGuide online portal and its large citizen scientist community."
