For Harsi: a recent lab photo of a specimen captured long ago by Rick Westcott. One of the more elaborately modified males in this interesting genus.

Super cool!
Thanks so much for posting this, Eric! I see what you mean now about elaborate facial modifications...

Sadly, my current point-and-shoot camera could never hope to capture this much detail, but I have my sights set on getting a macro lens for my DSLR in the (hopefully near) future.

Funny... I'm exactly 20 days older than this specimen! (LOL)
