An Asian weevil, Hyposipalus gigas. For being one of the largest families of insects, let alone animals as a whole, weevils are rarely made in toy/figure form.

One figure of H. gigas, by Yujin (Insects of Japan).

...and while we are on the weevils, here are miscellaneous Curculionidae. All are from unknown manufacturers, except [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which is by AAA.

These three, also by an unknown manufacturer(s), show up in toy sets in various color forms.

The red-banded snapping shrimp, Alpheus randalli. This species forms a symbiotic relationship with goby fish in the genus Amblyeleotris, and the two figures I have seen of this species [one depicted here] are both associated with this fish.

This figure is by Colorata (Coral Reef Fish) and is technically an accessory to the fish figure...

OK...I am officially done with species identifiable to at least the genus level. There are still some 'miscellaneous' remnants to post, but no new taxa until I get new taxa...

Your topic is alway interesting !!!

I googeled the red-banded snapping shrimp, and could read that some people have very bad experience with them in aquarioums, as they kill all the fish in the tank Shocked
So some may have be very confused by living in captivity scratch

Weevils sounds quite exotic, but I found that they are what we call "Snudebiller" - snout-beetles. So much easier to remember Laughing

Next, the Promethea moth, Callosamia promethea.

Two figures, both by Doug Walpus Art Studio. These figures represent the sexual dimorphism of the species, with the dark male (1) and the paler female (2).

The first amphipod figure ever made, well to my knowledge, the deep-sea pram bug, Phronima sedentaria. This unique figure is made by Ikimon Co. (formerly, Kitan Club) - Nature Techni Colour (Deep Sea Creatures).

Soft Ticks (family Argasidae).

One figure, by Play Visions (Fleas, Lice, and Ticks). This figure is marked 'chigger' but this is clearly not a chigger (besides, chiggers are only parasitic in the larval stage, which would only have 6 legs). The morphology is generic (and many members of this family look similar), but probably represents Ornithodoros or Carios.

The dust mite, Dermatophagoides farinae.

One figure, and what must be the ONLY figure of a dust mite, by Play Visions (Fleas, Lice, and Ticks). Kind of cartoony but interesting.
