All elaterids can click. A spine on the prosternum can be
snapped into a corresponding notch on the mesosternum, producing a
violent "click" that can bounce the beetle into the air. Clicking
is mainly used to avoid predation, although it is also useful when the
beetle is on its back and needs to right itself.
