hi mr. bugman!
a friend of mine posted in his facebook page an image of a weird unidentified bug which looks like some kind of cockroach.
could you help identify what it is?
they found it somewhere in southern philippines.
i have attached an image of the bug. unfortunately only 1 picture was posted.
Signature: it doesn’t matter
This is most definitely NOT a Cockroach, but rather a beetle, and it bears a striking resemblance to this Click Beetle from Thailand we posted some time back that was identified as Oxynopterus mucronatus. We believe it is either the same species or a closely related species. This FlickR image indicates that Oxynopterus mucronatus is found in the Philippines.
