I enjoy your unique collection a lot! Very Happy Crazy to see figures of planarians, I got really surprised the first time I've seen it on TAI. It will give you a lot of work surely to update this topic but it will serve surely as a good reference for you and for other collectors of this kind of figures. Very Happy

Interestingly, the random number generator picked another saturniid moth! So, here are my Saturnia figures. Right now, only two figures each representing one species.

I. small emperor moth, Saturnia pavonia.
1. Kaiyodo (Souvenirs Entomologiques) [the female is under the cage cover]

This is the first and biggest Paramecium collection I ever see Shocked

The Yujin Chrysochroa is really nice, the leaves look so real.

I didn't know someone made a Mormolyce

Hard to comment about everything but it is more than impressive! In this matter, your collection beats by far our Wiki. I hope next months to have the chance of using some of your pictures and information to enrich the Arthropoda section. Figures of Paramecia is
an example that even if we are always wishing more and more diversity, this hobby is always surpising us. Very Happy

Well, after all these posts, the random number generator FINALLY landed on a crustacean. Surprising too, considering how many I have identifiable to the genus or species level.

First up, the slipper lobster Ibacus ciliatus:
