Bloody Net -wined beetle

Lycus sp.


small bug about 1.5 cm in length and with branched antennas

Lycidae (net-winged beetles) is the correct family. I don't know which genus it belongs to, but definitely not Lycus. Must be one of the other genera.

I am pretty sure it's a netwinged beetle..Exact species may be Lycus Sanguineus...
