A global community of nature enthusiasts
photographing and learning about wildlife
This guy was around 70 mm long, and flew into our house in Antipolo (hills just east of Manila, Philippines). It first sat still on the curtain, then we carried it outside and placed it in the bushes. From internet research I believe it's a Click beetle, Oxynopterus mucronatus (?)

Hello Lars G, and Welcome to the Project Noah community! We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs athttp://www.projectnoah.org/faq where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours). There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See http://www.projectnoah.org/missions Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme. Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archivehttp://blog.projectnoah.org/ where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures.” So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around!
