This scientific illustration describes the Pennsylvania leatherwing or goldenrod soldier beetle, a common beetle species in Maryland, for identification. Characteristics of this species are depicted for entomologists and enthusiasts.

The Pennsylvania leatherwing is commonly found on flowers and feed on pollen and nectar. Their bright orange and black markings make them easy to identify. The species is native to North America.

Why Scientific Illustration?

Since insects are very small, scientific illustrators use a microscope with an attachment called camera lucida to view and study the specimen. The insect parts are sketched separately, then put back together to create an illustration plate ready for a textbook.
