Morimus funereus This beetle was in my wish list for a long time. It cannot fly, can be seen only in beech and oak forests. Its color merges with the bark of the trees. The length of antennas, longer than the body, indicate that it is male. Endangered species - status vulnerable.

  1. That is something very special. I still remember it’s German common name but have never seen it . I didn’t realise that it had such a large distribution in Europe. Posted 5 months ago
