I don't know why you used bullets, though, seems a bit of overkill considering the alcohol alone would have done the job:-) LOL!

Moved from Stylopidae.

I'm pretty sure it is Caenocholax fenyesi Pierce sensu lato (Strepsiptera: Myrmecolacidae).

This is Triozocera sp. not Caenoccholax fenyesi sensu lato.
