Alien of the Rainforest
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|When I first faced this creature I searched for orientation to identify the various body parts.|
This a species of the bug family Reduviidae which I found on Sulawesi and which I could not determine up to now.
Comparatively little is known on insects of Sulawesi apart from butterflies. Particularly the south-eastern peninsula has been severely neglected.

This is definitely a very unique kind of insect from Indonesia, Peter. It has exceptionally unusual limbs like that set of extensions on its head. You have identified the genus, though a little more details about it would remain a curiosity for me.
The image is technically perfect and we get to see its body parts with utmost clarity.
Ciao Peter, really an alien creature, I never see before, superb sharpness, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
