Do I see ocelli on the vertex, or is that just me ?

I see three white dots in a triangle, but one of them is outside the bare area so I may be seeing an unrelated reflection.

I agree. You can see 2 ocelli and a reflection.
Still, ocelli are present, so this must be some Pangoniinae.

It might be some species of Esenbeckia.

Thanks Paul, interesting point

'Holding' might not be the perfect description. Apparently the armature makes contact with sensitive places on the female, coaxing her to agree to mate.

16.11.17 13:43
Is was not quite sure whether the word would apply correctly, but, yes, that is okay.

15.11.17 11:29
How about armature, would that fit? based on http://onlinelibra
it would seem that these spines etc are used to hold the female!

14.11.17 09:22
All spines, ridges, lobes, etc. on the femur.

I think bewaffnung is like weapons (on femur 1).

13.11.17 13:10
Hello can any1 tell me how to translate bewaffnung des femur 1? Thx

26.10.17 13:37
