Eyed elater beetle is the common name I'm familiar with. I agree with Gloria on the binomial name.

This insect was about an inch long and it
Was several feet off the ground on an old
Ornamental grass seed head. I don't think
It is a click beetle.
It is......Just as Gloria has stated....An Eyed click beetle/alaus oculatus, NOT one of the creations you'd find in Havalotta's garden.

Katie, I did see a large click beetle on my screen this evening. I usually only see small ones. That was the coolest insect I have ever seen!
