3 Piece Tiny Insect in resin Set. The crystal clear lucite really enhances the amazing details, making for a great educational set. Not to mention its like getting your own ready made curiosities collection.
1 – Blister Beetle (Mylabris Pustulata) It’s of the family Meloidae and has a defensive secretion of a blistering agent, Cantharidin. Some say it “spits acid.” What you can’t see in the photos is that the orange is a beautiful, deep iridescence coloration.
1 – Jeweled Frog Beetle (S. Buqueti) This beetle in resin has beautiful iridescent colors which seem to change depending on how you look at it. It’s strong hind legs are used for male -to-male combat and defense.
1 – Wasp Spider (Argiope Bruennichi)
All three Lucite blocks measure individually approx. 1 3/4 inches high by 1 1/8 inch wide.
Like all insects in resin, no two are the same. We guarantee a quality specimen. Size, color and positioning, may vary slightly than the ones in the photos.
*All the specimen in this set were inspected and approved by USFWS (Fish Wildlife Services) as being sustainably sourced and approved for resale. Meaning it does not harm the species or the environment.
These are absolutely wonderful specimens; and they are intended for a young insect enthusiast! I love how they’re preserved
