Someone send me this photo, his friend caught it while fishing, i wonder what it is?
We don’t even know where to begin to classify this thing. We hope you are able to provide additional information. How large was this thing? Was it caught with a net or a fishing pole? Are there any additional photos showing the underside? Perhaps one of our readers can assist with this identification. We did need to research your location, and we have learned on InfoPlease that Brunei is a small country on the north coast of Borneo.

I think that’d be family Lycidae/Genus Duliticola . . . a Trilobite Beetle. They’re pretty nifty.
The letter gives the impression this creature is aquatic. Trilobite Beetles are not aquatic, but they do look very similar.
Yeah, I had the same thought. . . but from what I’ve gathered we’ve only got good images of the females of a couple of species and the others, the males, and the larvae are often unknown.
Plus, are those Cerci?
Most like the tail of a fish to me. This thing is really big for an insect, check the leaves around it: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/124556003
Looks like the thing they used to control the minds of people in the Wrath Of Khan,
Best comment I’ve read!
