Longhorn Beetle Coptops leucotistica (?)
Please accept my apologies for the delay of this post. Lots of things happening.
Lepidoptera were well represented in Sri Lanka and I keep kicking myself for not getting photographs of some of the amazing endemics such as Sri Lanka Birdwing and Blue Mormon.
Maxates versicauda microptera
Marbled White, Nyctemera coleta
Unknown from Sinharaja
Handmaiden Moth, Syntomoides imaon
Dragonflies were also very common especially near the rice paddies but also in the rain forest and at all altitudes.
Crimson-tailed Marsh Hawk. Orthetrum pruinosum
Foggy-winged Twister, Tholymis tillarga
Green Skimmer, Orthetrum sabina
Pied Parasol, male & female
There were a lot of spiders about. Huntsman and Giant Wood Spider were the largest but definitely not the weirdest.
Jumping Spider, Hasarius adansani
Huntsman, Heteropoda venatoria
Now for the rest...Crickets that could eat your arm off, beetles that can carry you off and a "torch" with a mind of its own.
Unidentified Longhorn Beetle
"The Mobile Torch" Glow-worm sp.
The same Glow-worm
Mallotus Shield Bug
Titan Beetle. The hole in the carapace was caused by the cat that caught it...then the cat got some of the same.
