Duliticola – Mysterious Beetle From Borneo

Meet Duliticola sp. aka “Trilobite beetle” found in tropical forest in Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo, which is still huge mystery for scientists.

Disovered in 19th century, only 2 species were discribed to this day. There are more, but they can’t be identified without males. In most cases, only neotenic females are known and possible males, tottaly different, were placed in another genus.

There is more… entomologists are still not sure what these beetles eat.
