For my 3000th spotting, I choose this Trilobite beetle. I've been fascinated by these beetles ever since I saw my first one on PN a few years ago. Fellow spotter Jason Alexander and I found a few of these in Grand Forest Park in the city of Bandung.
I was thrilled to finally spot a Trilobite beetle. I love their prehistoric look. We were bombarded by thirsty mosquitoes when we spotted these and I wasn't prepared for that. It was a challenge to get some decent photos while being eaten alive, but this was the best I could do. Thanks again to Jason and his family for their hospitality and bringing me to the park.
