Great pictures chap - makes me rather jealous and wanting to go back to Malaysia! Those stick insects are probably Abrosoma sp. (poss. A. festinatum), and that 'orrible leggy thing is most defintely a Scutigera sp. Bloody horrible things.. smilie-eek.gif

Thanks chris-it is nice to immerse myself in these pics for a bit-a real taste of being there.Nice find with the L.violaceopes MM,I had one like that but my female ate him.Im sure that is a tropical glow worm larvae-its the um... larval stage of the glow worm, we have the Lampyris noctiluca here in the UK-they are to be found on chalk downland and nice so called unimproved grassland and as Mark rightly says feeds on snails-a very interesting technique they have too for feeding, they 'tweak' the snail with their mouthparts and the snail then liquefies, the glow-worm drinks up the resulting snail soup. f1.gif
