Hey,
does anybody know where i can find these beetles for sale?
i used to have a couple once (bought them on an insectfair 4 years ago, haven't seen these anywhere since then)

this is a picture of a species likely to anthia_choracica, this is Anthia thoracea:

All info is wanted!

I don't know off hand, sorry, but that is an awesome looking beetle! If you hear anything please do let me know! I wouldn't mind getting some! I've heard there is a beetle website due to be opening sometime soon with some pretty good info on it. Perhaps it will help to bring together more the breeders/collectors, etc.

Take care,

Paul

I guess it's from the same family as tiger beetles but these ones get bigger, i used to have a couple and they were about 8cm big, the guy i bought them from said they were "assasin beetles" or "running ground beetles" their origin is South Africa, that's al i know, i really wanna get a hold on these species again, so please give me al the info you can give me.

Does anybody know a site with pictures of tigerbeetles or "Anthia" species ???
