  1. Hello, Erik, great photos! Thank you for sharing them with us.
    You know the species, which is also great.
    You can identify them yourself. Please check this guide:

    BTW, I checked your website! Sincere Congratulations!

  2. Wow adorable! Posted 2 years ago
  3. Erik, I just identified the species for you (button in the top right of unidentified images).

    The species didn't exist before (you're first!) so I just searched for the name, hit enter and it created the page automatically! It works great as long as the species is already in Wikipedia, in which case it imports the text from there :)

    Welcome and congrats again :)

  4. Wow erik.... amazing pic... thanks for sharing. Posted 2 years ago
  5. I find this pic similar to the ant characters from the film Ant Bully :D Posted 2 years ago
  6. This is not a Meloe violaceus. Meloe species have a smaller round pronotum while this one has a spiny pronotum and the shape of the segments of the antennae is different.

    I think Lamia textor is a much better match. Do you have a top view of it's back?
