I totally agree with you bayucca. I am a complete amateur when it comes to identification and understand how important it is to get a 100% confirmed ident, otherwise where is the point. I'm just happy to put this little piece of Thailand on the map with my spottings.

Looks fine, now, let's wait and see. The chance for an ID is better when it is marked "unknown". But remember, I do not challenge your ID in general ;-)...

How's that bayucca?

If you look at some pictures on the web, they are IDed as Curculionidae, which is definitely the wrong family, so accuracy of the name on Project Noah is important for us and the rest of the world...

Hmm, good question. What about taking the subfamily Apoderinae and add the possible tribe Trachelophorini and possible genus Paracycnotrachelus in the description section and wait one week, if somebody has a better clue, like Michael Geiser?

What should I do with the ident then bayucca? Leave it blank for now?

Could be a Paracycnotrachelus sp., but I am not sure if you can get the genus/species from this picture alone. Looks closer, but is it Paracycnotrachelus sp.?
