Maybe Otiorhynchus ligustici?
Thank you again Willie :)
I couldn't find him, but I found so many other lovely things :)
Added 2 more, not the best...
I know, I think I have one from yesterday... just checking
Straight from the top. I know it is not always easy to get these, maybe you try to go with ISO 800 so that you have a shorter time. If you have such tiny bugs even the moving of the camera during the click might make the shot unsharp (at least when I click...).
You think I should try?How should I photograph him then?
Why not, maybe he is showing up specially for you...
Hehe, I don't think I can find him today ;-)
Only one way to find out: Go out and try other shots from allover the bug...
Neither me, sorry!
Thank you Maria :)@ bayucca, I really don't know which species it is. I think you are right about the stribes, but can't find others who look like it.
Hmm... At first sight I would also say Otiorhynchus sp. and Ligustici is very close. But look at the median part. Isn't there in all Ligustici a "dark" stripe in the middle? In your I only see a very thin dark line and a brighter stripe on both sides of the median line. In my eyes there a 5 darker "stripes" in Ligustici, 1 thicker in the middle and 2 thinner ones at each side. I have some doubts if this is really Ligustici and then also about the genus. What do you think??
