  1. Dreamy shot! I love the punctate elytra! Gorgeous individual! Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks Lisa, Donaciinae are notoriously hard to identify, but with this species it is helped a lot by the large number of "dents" in the elytra, so I tried to get the lighting so that these can (just about) be recognized by bringing in some light from the front of the beetle, probably resulting in the "dreamy" shadows ;o) Posted one year ago, modified one year ago
