在網上Neurobasis longipes的相片幾乎所有都是雄性的.雌性的沒有幾張. 而我這次拍到的也同樣是雄性.
雌性的Neurobasis longipes呢我連看的機會都沒機會看到,不必說拍到相片了. 看來我還要回到Paramat Garden露營多幾次.要耐心的找..要耐心的等.
"...both Neurobasis longipes and Neurobasis chinensis share a common distribution area (Peninsular Malaysia) and have similar morphology, misidentification might occur as it is a very difficult and challenging to build identification keys to separate all Neurobasis species ......"
