Hoi Sen's Trilobite Beetle (juv ♀)- Platerodrilus ruficollis/ Duliticola hoiseni (?)

A very bizarre-looking beetle- A Trilobite Beetle!

 

Trilobite beetles are so-called due to their resemblance to the already-extinct Marine Trilobite arthropods.

  

The females of these beetles are termed Neotenous since they remain in larvae-form throughout their lives.
