What amazing markings on the back of this beetle.
Excellent sharpness and exposure, Alex.
A note would be greatly appreciated.
TFS. : )

Hello Alex!
This is a beetle from family Tenebrionidae, a detailed ID I will try to send you later :)
Great macro wioth fantastic details. I really like this picture!
Best greetings,

Sharp with good contrast. The elytral pattern are so clear. As Radomir said this is a member of Tenebrionidae, Genus: Adesmia


Shaloom Alex,

Mr. / Ms. "NoName" reminds me of "Ditch Flowers"...
I have managed to photograph a bug that is a member of the NoName family too.

I think I need to ask Radomir for some bug-genealogy!

I love the patterns on the back of this bug! What a great design for a coffeemug, eh! The legs are pretty standard, Junebug like.. ;) Nothing to get too excited about. The usual grappling hooks at the ends. Excellent compo. Tfs, Jay
