  • You can find there thousands of my wildlife photographs, especially beetles and other insects. I constantly take pictures in the Czech Republic and also abroad so new photos will be continuously added. All photos are – unlike the old site – together. The search works for the all web so your possible registrati is valid for the all web, not only for separate sections as it was at the old site.
  • Category Collection includes stuffed beetles pictures. Some of them are in my collection, the others are in my friends´ collections.
  • Category Meloidae contains a list of species of Meloidae family all which is amended by photographs of stuffed species.
  • In the other categories you can find photos from the wild nature. If you want to use any photo for printing and publication, please contact me! I´ll send you a photo in an original size suitable for a large format printing.

Hi Stanislav, yesterday I found very similar larvae/pupae and was looking in the Bibionidae myself, but couldn\'t find a match (except for your image here), so I asked on diptera.info. Tony Irwin identified mine as <i>Forcipomyia</i> (Ceratopogonidae), so I\'m sure yours must be that also. See: https://diptera.info/forum/viewthread.php?thread_id=99869 Cheers, Arp

This is Trox niger.

This is a specimen of Trox sabulosus, not T. hispidus.

Čeleď Menoponidae to asi je. Zlotorzycka (1980) uvádí 4 druhy té čeledi parazitující na pávech, M. gallinae mezi nimi není.
