The gulf fritillary, Agraulis vanillae. When I was a beginning insect collector years ago in Arizona, this was one of the most common species in my neighborhood!

The golden-banded skipper, Autochthon cellus. Skippers are rarely made in figure form; I know of only one actual PVC figure (a larva by Kaiyodo) other than these magnet figures.

One, a magnet figure by Doug Walpus Art Studio.

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.

Black fly (family Simuliidae). Another fairly generic fly by Funrise Toys (World of Nature Insect Collection), but marketed specifically as a black fly.

Great insects! I love the amphipod as well. It's very unique and I like its translucency.

I have about 15 new species to add, so time to update 'Bug of the Day' with new species.

First up, the Arran brown, Erebia ligea.

The giant deep-sea ostracod, Gigantocypris agassizii.

Two figures, both by Ikimon - Nature Techni Colour (Deep Sea Creatures, 1 and 2). These two figures, both new this year from 2017, are to my knowledge the only figures of Ostracoda! However, I think the prototype set for Safari LTD's Deep Sea TOOB contained this species; early images of the figures in the tube showed a round orange object, reminiscent of Gigantocypris. Whatever it was, it did not make it to the final product. The orange figure was in the first set, followed up by the clear figure in the second set.

The Madagascan sunset moth, Chrysiridia rhipheus.

One figure, a magnet by Doug Walpus Art Studio. I am surprised this species has not been represented previously in toy/model form.

OK...one last one for now! This time, a plasterer bee in the genus Colletes.

One figure, by Play Visions (Bees, Wasps, and Hornets). With nearly 100 species in North America alone, I am not comfortable putting a species name on this figure. Still, it is probably the only member of the family Colletidae in toy/figure form.

The silver-bordered fritillary, Boloria selene.

One figure, by K&M International (Butterfly Nature Tube). This figure has been an 'unidentified' figure for years until a recent suggestion of B. selene was made by a forum member.
