Beetle with the fancy antennas.


This bugger was sitting on my study desk and I clicked it due to its fancy antennas…

This belongs to the group of Beetles which fall under the order of Coleoptera. The key factor which distinguishes beetles from other insects is its Elytra ; which is a protective cover over the abdominal area formed by hardening of the fore wings.

A sincere thank goes to Mr Tharindu Ranasinghe for making me aware of the facts.
