Woodboring beetle


Aphodius fimetarius


Jumnos ruckeri

Fungus beetle


Macrodontia beetle


Podabrus tomentosus

No, PV only did a set of 8 beetles (I have them reviewed here already, here: http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=1940.0), most of these are by XX.

I have to admit I am a specialist on arthropod figures and I am still missing half the XX beetles (Calosoma, Leptinotarsa, Cotinis, Pyrrchroa, Cicindela, Cassida, Chrysochus, 2 versions of Adalia, possibly others...).

In addition to PV and XX, your first (group) photo shows the Melolontha melolontha by Bullyland.
