Reading the news has it’s good days sometimes. Today in the news in Malaysia, I discovered a new insect called a Spanish fly. It is an emerald green beetle and is the source of a toxic blistering agent once use as an aphrodisiac. Source Wikipedia.
Something different today…

The moth is characterised by its human skull like pattern on the head.
