Big Assassin Bug from the Amazon!
December 19, 2009
Found this amazing specimen on a hike in the amazon, about two hours downstream from Iquitos, Peru. It was about the size of A. cristatus, maybe a little bigger.

That is sure one impressive Assassin Bug.  We don’t think we will be able to find a species name for you, but perhaps one of our readers will have luck in that department.

    Fairly certain that this assassin is Erbessus grossus (Harpactorinae).
