|Adult Picromerus bidens reach body lengths of 10 - 14 mm. Their bodies are dome shaped, strongly built and have a dark brown base colour. The legs and antennae (5 segmented) are reddish brown. On both sides of the pronotum, which has 2 emerging reddish points, is to find an acute brown, at its top end black thorn. Both sides of the pronotum have a pointy spine, which is blackish brown at the end, and a reddish spot. The scutellum is yellow at the end. |
|Gonocerus insidiator reach body lengths of 10 - 15 mm. Their body shape is similar to that of Pentatomidae species, but they are not so broad. The upper surface of the body is reddish brown and the underside is yellowish-green. The head has strong, long antennae with 4 segments and greenish eyes. The head and antennae are also reddish brown. The pronotum is broad and bears remarkably sharp spikes. The scutellum is smaller than in Pentatomidae species. The wing covers are ridged and - and covered in black indentations. On the abdomen there is a significant edge in drawing a bright...|
...e is a significant edge in drawing a bright line, which is frequently interrupted something darker. This crest is overlooking the side of the abdomen. The hind wings have a dark, golden brown sheen. The legs are strongly built and yellowish-green to reddish-yellow in colour.
|... long (and hairy) tail appendages total lengths of 8 to 17 mm are possible. Their long and slender bodies are yellowish-brown in colour sometimes with a green shimmer. The head is light coloured with a central marking in yellow, gray, brown and reddish-brown tones. Their two large compound eyes are brown in colour. Their mouth parts are atrophied because they mostly do not eat and live of fluid. The surface of the thorax is yellowish, reddish and whitish in colour and has a wide, somewhat darkened median stripe, in which a bright line runs lengthwise. The scutellum (small triangular plate on the thorax) is bright turquoise. Each segment of the abdomen has a light brown andreddish brown pattern on it and a long shiny green stripe lengthwise on the upper surface. In male specimens the posterior part is often red or reddish brown in colour. The Pond olive dun is able to swim by moving its abdomen up and down (making a wriggling motion). 7 pairs of gills are located laterally, the first six pairs of which work almost continuously. At the end of its abdomen it has 2 ...|
|Meiosimyza rorida reach body lengths of up to 4 mm. Their round, yellowish, reddish and beige coloured bodies are covered in dark, widely spaced bristles. The head is yellowish-white, with a broad face and dark stripes of bristles at the top. The compound eyes are large and reddish. The chest (thorax) is reddish-yellow and covered with long individual bristles. The scutellum is light yellow and has individual bristles along its edges. The abdomen and thorax are separated by a narrow ‘waist’, resembling that of wasps. |
|...ies are oval shaped and have a black base colour. The head and pronotum are black to dark red or brown. In the male specimens the 11th antenna segment is sabre -shaped and four times the length of the previous two segments together. The antennae are reddish to yellow in colour. The head is standing upright and partially hidden behind the fore chest. The front tapered hips protrude. The elytra (forewings) are brown, reddish yellow or yellow in colour and covered with yellowish or light brown hairs. Attagenus smirnovi have reddish-yellow legs. |
|Common red soldier beetles are 7 mm to 10 mm long. They are yellow-reddish colored on the whole body, with only the rear deck wing tips dark. The Common red soldier beetles have long probe, of which the first two limbs are reddish, the remaining are brown coloured. The legs are orange, the feet are dark. |
|Adult Eristalis (Eoseristalis) pertinax reach body lengths of 11 - 16 mm. Their bodies have a black base colour. The thorax is uniformly black in colour. In the males the entire abdomen is wedge-shaped and almost black in colour, with reddish-yellow markings on the second segment which do not extend onto neighbouring segments (as is the case in other Eristalis species). These markings have yellowish-brown hair. In the females the markings on the 2nd abdominal segment are hard to make out...|
... are hard to make out because they are very indistinct. The brownish, feathery bristles on the antennae are a striking feature of the drone fly. The compound eyes are unusually large and touch in the males. The front legs of the drone fly are mostly reddish-yellow;the hind legs are on the whole much darker.
|The mesonotum is a brownish-black, shiny, metallic colour. 4 grey bands run lengthwise along its upper surface. The wings have a reddish brown to brownish tint. The legs are rusty red, sometimes yellowy-orange. The abdomen is reddish-brown to yellowish-red and has a dark brown median stripe. The rear edges of each abdominal segment are also dark. A dark side seaming runs across all segments. |
|... 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 antennae often have dark ends. On the wing covers (elytra) are 10 stripes of fine, puncture-like points. These stripes, which are lengthwise...|
...ng feature of the water scavenger beetle. Additional rows from irregular posited series of points appear in the space between the rows from regular posited points. The legs of the beetle are yellowish, yellow-brown or rust-colored. The tarsi appear reddish brown to dark brown in colour.
The hind legs have long hairs that aid in swimming. The water scavenger beetle prefers to live in and on smaller bodies of waters with sufficient sunlight. They are often found (as adults or larvae) floating on t...
|Adult Pseudovadonia livida can reach body lengths of 5 to 10 mm. The fairy-ring longhorn beetle is the smallest species within the genus Pseudovadonia. Their elongated bodies are black and yellowish-brown to reddish-brown in color. The underside of their body is covered in gray hairs. They have black heads and black antennae Their eyes have a clearly visible edge on the inside. The antennae are situated near the eyes. The thorax is almost spherical and has a ...|
...lmost spherical and has a rough scattering of spots. An important feature is the Scutellum which backwards is shaped like a double peak. The wing covers of younger insects are lighter in colour (brownish-yellow), and darken over the course of time (reddish brown). They have a scattering of spots similar to that of the thorax.
