Refugee's picture

Not like the common one

They do not have the ribbed wing cases and also have a slight "Scarab" like tint that looks like a reflection from a cheep camera lens.

You should move this to

You should move this to 'Invertebrates' where the specialists are more likely to see it, and where it will get a 'Likely ID'.
