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:
