I have caught these glowing on the desert floor in Arizona (note two glowspots in 1st photo). Can't wait to move down there this summer!

Cool looking guy. For some reason I think that's not its adult/mature form.

That would rock! Hey John the one you pointed out there is a male but the females keep the larval form as far as I know. Didn't know the sps is in AZ too.

Oh! Best of both worlds. I can't put my finger on it, but it reminds me of a sci-horror creature from 80's cinema?

ZBZ, you're not talking about the antlion-like earbug from Wrath of Kahn, are you? I'm not sure I can think of a more classic ick-factor bug moment in the movies. In the ear!

I had to look that up, it's been awhile. The Ceti Eel, from Khan's bug collection.

Now watch...in the next couple of days there will be a request for one in the classifieds{D
