Hi Pete,

I thought you had manticora once? They are amazing but I think the large Anthias species are a bit nicer. I haven't seen any monster species in many years now (just those one-time Amblycheila). Do you have pics of Anthias and other predatory beetles?

Hi Pete,

 

Thanks for joining! I know there must be many others out there that have been waiting to find a committed beetle forum. The problem for us is HOW to spread the word to them! How did you find us?

 

Anyway, glad you made it here and excited to learn some things about beetles from you as we get this forum going!

 

I wasn't familiar with Anthia, so I did a web search and found this page:

Pretty interesting website!
