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]

Really nice collection of insects, particularly the large beetles. I had no idea they made so many great figures of unusual species.

I am completely amazed by that "2. Hayakwa Toys (Insects Collection - Special)" . The one with the wings spread out.

next, the Japanese sap beetle, Glischrocheilus (Librodor) japonicus, by Kaiyido (Insects Gather to Sap - Night Feast of Midsummer). This figure was actually an 'accessory' for the Pseudotorynorrhina japonica that came in the set!
