  1. Oh WOW!! What terrific beetles Mingfei!! The top one looks almost like a Tiger Beetle with those colours and seems to have very large eyes too.

  2. That's a nice one (the 2nd picture doesn't show up for me for some reason). Anyway, it's a genus of longhorned beetle that I don't have in my collection.

    So that means thr tiger beetles in your place is quite different from ours. In my opinion, the long-horned beetle's stripes looks extremely like a sunflower seed.
