|Philonthus cognatus reach body lengths of 8-11 mm. Their elongated and partially hairy bodies are primarily black. The front section of their body has a greenish bronze shimmer. The rounded head is black with a dark green to bronze shimmer. The first segment of the antennae is yellowish in colour on the underside and black on the upper surface, while the following ten segments are entirely black. This is the most important identifying characteristic for this species.|
|Adult Adela reaumurella reach body lengths of about 17 mm. Their bodies are 4 mm in width and have a greenish base colour. The upper surface has a light gold, bronze or silver metallic sheen and is covered in a fine powder. The head and neck of the males are densely covered with long, black hair, while the females are lighter, shorter and less hairy.
The antennae are whitish. In the males, they are 55 – 60 m...|
...0 mm, about three times longer than the wings. In the females the antennae are about half as long as in the males. The green longhorn reaches wingspans of 14 - 18 mm. The front wings are about 4 mm in width when folded, with a shiny, metallic green, bronze or silver sheen. The hind wings are black and have a bluish-violet glow in sunlight.
|The forest bug (Pentatoma rufipes) belongs to the family Pentatomidae. It is one of the biggest bugs in Central Europe and can reach a length of 13 to 15 mm. In the summer, it is bronze coloured, in the autumn, dark brown in colour. The upper edges of the pronotum are strongly curved. The neck shield at the top lights in orange. The proboscis is very long. The legs and the first set of antennae are maroon coloured. The larvae of f...|
|The adult insects reach a length of 12 to 15 mm. They are green-brown to bronze in colour. However after the winter, their colouration is light green. Their bodies are covered in small dimples and spots, their feet are brownish in colour, and the outer edges of their wing covers are yellowish.|
|Water scavenger beetles reach body lengths of 4-9 mm. Their bodies are oval-shaped, with a very flat underside. They have a slightly metallic sheen, are deep black in colour and shimmer slightly bronze when seen in light.
Adults have short, club-shaped antennae. Their mouthparts (maxillary palpi) are elongated, yellowish to reddish-brown in colour and hair-like (filiform) and may be mistaken for antennae. The maxillary palpi like the antenn...|
|...s (elytra ) are reddish-brown and (when closed) show an approximately equilateral triangle at the upperside. The elytra are coarse to finely covered in small holes. Depending on light conditions, the head and scutellum appear black, dark blue or bronze-green in colour.
|Adults can reach body lengths of 3-5 mm. Their elongated, domed, dark bodies have a strong metallic sheen, which is bronze, copper, blue, dark green and (more rarely) black in colour. The metallic blue-green to blue or black forewings (elytra ) have clearly visible dots, which run in multiple rows lengthwise. The head, scutellum and legs are a similar colour to the bod...|
|...ible, greenish-brown or brownish-gold coloured band with a fine dark network of lines on the surface. A shiny silver-whitish area can be on its front section. The folium in space is limited by deep waves with narrow dark edges which can be golden , bronze or brownish in colour. The underside of the opisthosoma is dark brown and shiny silver with two narrow bands running lengthwise, which stop at the spider’s silk-spinning organ (spinneret).|
|...When disturbed they are unlikely to escape. Lace bugs feed on plant juices, which they remove from the epidermis layer of the leaf undersides with their piercing and sucking mouth parts. When the leaf cells are empty, the damaged area is discoloured bronze or silver. Each individual spends its entire life on the one plant, if not on the same plant part.
|Longhorn beetles are iridescent and can be encountered in a wide variety of colours- red, blue, brown, bronze, grey, metallic hues, green, black and white. Their most striking characteristic is their long, segmented antennae, which often point backwards and may exceed the length of the body. They resemble ibex horns hence this insects name. As the antennae...|
