Acrocinus longimanus


Just jumped at my camera lens on my way to dinner. I'm sure this one is well known. About 3" long...


Outside an rural office in Pichincha, Ecuador


Made a hissing noise when we went near it.

Didn't notice any pseudoscorpions, Chun. It sat on my hand for a couple of minutes before flying off though, I'll have a better look if it's back again this evening.

Thanks Juan. It was quite a lump. Beautiful wing casings.

If you are lucky, there might be pseudoscorpions under it's wings.
