  1. Hi, miri! Welcome to JungleDragon, and thank you for sharing your lovely photo!! I am attaching some information below to help you get a better ID, the main thing being your location/country.

    **Note that in JungleDragon, members are asked to include basic details as part of the photo, therefore please consider the following tip(s):

    - You did not share any location info. You are asked to at least share the country in which the photo was taken, since this helps in identifying the species. You can set the country using the "Set country" button. Even better is to geotag the photo, which you can do using the "Geotag this photo" button.

    Note that by sharing your photo with more complete details, it will show up in the species browser, the global wildlife map and in search. It helps people find your photo much better, plus it delivers a far more educational photo. Check out our photo sharing tutorial for more information:


    If you have any questions, please reply to this comment, we're here to help :)

  2. Hi Miri - We can't name your insect just yet - ID's only happen at the species level. It's OK to leave photos without an ID though. There are some very good insect experts around here, so if you give people a little more information - especially where it was found (geo-tag on the map), they may be able to help you get to an answer, if it's possible.

        1. hi Miri,

          Please read Lisa's link. It explains how setting a location means using the country or geotag buttons for it.

  3. Hi Miri, welcome to JungleDragon! This might be Messena sp. Posted one year ago
    1. This is getting weird ... we have 3 images of "this species" (?) now and I just can't seem to find a good fit/reference for it. Looked through the series of 16 (or some such) papers "Revision of the Eurybrachidae" by Jérôme Constant, but without much result...
