Thanks Helge,

Nice images. This is the only meloid (blister beetle) figure I am aware of identifiable/marketed at the species level. I have a few generic ones, usually from vintage/bin style sets. A great addition was the presence of the folded wings under where the elytra attach!

Nice photo's !

I had two figurines so I carefully cut the elytra of one open to reveal a bit of the soft wings.

It even has detailed wings under the carapace? Kaiyodo, you never cease to amaze me.
I like turtles.
