So jealous!!!

My favorite photos from your list:

Phoxophrys cephalum

某種茶腹鳾。因為起大霧距離又遙遠,拍起來效果挺糟的。(wow, that pasted!)

Lycidae

landshells

Rafflesia keithii

Napenthese rajah

Heteropteryginae (of course)

(and a bunch more)

What was the purpose of your trip?

Did you go alone?

Will you go back again?

Those earwigs are incredible!!!!! As are some of the katydids, truly beautiful insects. If not for China's undesirable government, I would love to live there.

Those are some great pictures. I notice the cockroaches seem to be pretty small overall. How big is that black species with the white banded antenna?

That`s male Catara rugosicollis (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1865)

Actually, this time, I saw both C. r. and C. minor Krauss, 1902, but the later one is too active, and fly away before I took picture.

The females just mimic Tenebrionidae. both form and smell, very intresting.

Kinabalu is in Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia~~ not China. Don`t worry, haha

Probably not this year, but do you plan to make trips there somewhat regulary? I'd be interested in going with you some year. I think I'd like to spend a few years of my life (later) here:

Always have bad impression in Indonesian region... especially the immigration and some local people..

So I prefer to travel alone in Malaysia and Thailand~

SE. Asia is quite easy to go for me~

U just need to make ur date, and txt me~~ :lol:

I always make the anniversary schedule in the end of last year. So, please inform me earlier.

I think it would be nice to travel with u.

But my english is very bad, just like the first year we met on intenet~~ haha

Wow, don't know how I missed the Borneo on the title! :lol: Even better! Maybe someday these will find their way into the hobby, even though it's very unlikely. The black roach in the right photo especially.
