Ive attached a pair of photos of Paraguayan bugs. The Mbaracayu one I am not even convinced is a heteropteran at all, but do you know what it is and what family it belongs to? If you have time could you please quickly check out our page www.faunaparaguay.com/heteroptera.html and make sure that our images are correctly classified! I am a bit unsure especially about the Pyrrhocorids! By the way we have tonnes of unclassified Coleopteran images too if you fancy turning your hand to them www.faunaparaguay.com/coleoptera.html and orthopterans www.faunaparaguay.com/orthoptera.html Great site by the way and please feel free to use any of the photos from the website for yours! Best wishes
We are linking back to the pages you indicated as well as the Fauna of Paraguay home page. What a marvelous website. Of the two images you sent to us, only one is a True Bug, and it is not distinctive enough for us to even attempt a proper identification. The Mbaracayu image is a beetle. It is our best guess that it is a Metallic Wood Boring Beetle in the family Buprestidae, though it may be a Click Beetle in the family Elateridae.
Congrats on the outcome of the journalism conferences! Nice to hear good news. The beetle from Paraguay is a click beetle (Elateridae), though I’m not sure which genus. Keep up the great work.
