Tonight, the random number generator landed on one of the barnacles. All of the figures I have are from a set released by Kitan Club - Nature Techni Colour. So, here they all are.

I. Balanus rostratus.
There are four figures here. Three combine together to form a cluster (with magnets inside them to help hold them close), and the fourth is a strap figure (that I removed the strap to make a cluster of four).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

II. Japanese goose barnacle, Capitulum mitella.
Two figures, independent and different figures with internal magnets.

VI. Megabalanus rosa.
Two figures. One is a pin but the other is remarkable: it is split down the center revealing a cross-section of the internal anatomy! Truly the most amazing in the set for this reason!

I am completely fascinated by the barnacles Shocked Shocked
Here we only have ( As far as I know ) the little "Flat pyramids" that we call "Rurer", - in wikipedia they are called Balanidae , but they must have a more common name ? study

How marvellous that they have such a versatile lot of relatives cheers

So what is for you the most interresting Macrocheira kaempferi figure?

Not sure; the Japanese ones are all so well-done. I think I'd have to say the most recent one (2016) by Colorata.

Thank you  Very Happy  The new boxes are very tempting but very pricey

Those two are really impressive, so tiny but so realistic too drunken

Those two butterflies are not tiny; they are actually life-sized! The Yujin insects were molded after real specimens so they are all life-sized.

Well it looks like we are getting more taxonomic diversity today...

Next up, funnelweb spiders. I have two species but because most figures represent one of them, I am showcasing both here.

NOTE: Since the original post, the species here have been split into two families/

FAMILY: DIPLURIDAE (funnelweb mygalomorphs).

I. Sydney funnelweb spider, Atrax robustus.

A. Large figure by Bullyland.

B. Smaller figures.
1. Science and Nature (Animals of Australia)
2. Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. (Venomous Spiders)
3. Cadbury (Yowies - UK release)
4. Cadbury (Yowies - Australian release)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

FAMILY: MECICOBOTHRIIDAE (sheet funnelweb spider, dwarf tarantulas). [updated 7/10/2017]

I. Hexura fulva.
One figure, by Club Earth (Spiders to Go).

I ment they are tiny even life-sized Very Happy I didn't know Yujin insects were life sized. If one day you would find enough time to show a Yujin insects walkaround or review, you would please me and not only me I guess.
