trilobite beetle

I found this exciting creature in Prefab camp, Kutai National Park, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. A beetle like primitive fauna of early Cambrian period, that already extinct-trilobite-, Duliticola is the genus name also known as Trilobite larvae, this beetle belongs to family of Lycidae, Coleoptera orde. Further article on this beetle, read at this link.

Mas Wawan! Binatang apa ini??????? Buas kah?
Coleoptera orde? Siapanya Cleopatra?
Ternyata di luar sana ada hewan-hewan unik seperti ini.

ini serangga jenis kumbang.. ukurannya kecil skitar 3-4 cm.
iya banyak binatang unik musnah sebelum sempat diteliti karena hutan dimana mereka tinggal hilang...
kesempatan kita untuk tahu manfaatnya bagi kita juga ikut hilang...
