    Thanks in advance!

    The photo is not very clear. It could be a Colorado Potato Beetle.

    I've looked on the internet, and it could be a Brown Beetle, however not a Colorado Potato Beetle. What I actually want to know is that it's not a cockroach or anything similar. My sister's been in Egypt, you see, and I found this insect on the floor (dead though).

    Too be honest it could be any number of hundreds of insects. Can you supply a clear image, size and location all are required to get a possible identification any guesses at this point are just that guesses

    A clear image would be hard to get (I think that my mother's thrown it away now) but I know that it was roughly 1,5 cm long and 1 cm thick.
