Mr bugman, this prehistoric looking bug spread it’s wings at me when threatened by a broom stick…note I never intended to kill it, and didn’t. But, the scary and surprisingly part is that when unexpectedley spread it’s hidden wing it was of a beautiful violet irredescent type , and intimidating to me at the same time!
What kind of bug is it!?
