Dear Fred from Belgium,
In your subject line you imply that this is a Beetle, but in the body of your request you mention the Leaf Footed Bug family Coreidae. The latter is correct. We identified this Leaf Footed Bug as Paraphes flavocinctus on the Quaoar Power Zoo website. We have a previous submission of Paraphes flavocinctus in our archives as well. It is identified as Paryphes flavocinctus on Bio-Nica.
Please Daniel, what’s the correct namen Paraphes or Paryphes?
both are used in literature…
We are not certain which name is more correct and that would probably take input from a Heteropterist or checking older reference books rather than online sources.
oké, thank you!
