Spilotus quadripustulatus Melsheimer
this is HUGE, Tom!!!

 
It looked small to me:-)
I take it this must be a good find.

 
yessss!
a true rarity, if i'm not mistaken about the ID, but i feel confident and, hopefully, Dr Pollock will check it to make sure

 
That's great!!!
And I saved the specimen in a vial of alcohol with other bugs I kept for Don.

 
lucky UNH!
from Darren Pollock: "yep, you got it right. I'm pleased to see that you consider it "stunning". I think that few would! ;-) I totally agree; I haven't seen that one live yet."
