Trichodes is a species of checkered beetles belonging to the family Cleridae. These beetles are found in most of Europe, in East Palearctic ecozone and in North Africa.One of the most common species among Trichodes genus is Trichodes apiarius. I'm in doubt if my photo belongs to T. apiarius , any exact determination will be appreciated.

Hi Mohammad,the choice of point of view make the difference!Magnificent capture whit spectacular details on this beetle despite the difficult light of a rainy day,beautiful details of the small drops too and perfect colors,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

hello Ehssani,
loved to see your this beautiful bug drenched in dewdrops/ raindrops and that on flower petals! wow, that's classic! you have taken it from a nice POV and the DoF is simply great.
keep posting. good work.

PS: regarding identification.. it might be a Trichodes apiarius. Trichodes alvearius is also not impossible. can't see the patterns and head-structure very well. do you have a dorsal view?
