Lirata alta – Another American Ant-eater

Tonight we present another Neotropical eucharitid. A bit more understated than the iridescent Kapala splendens, but beautiful regardless. See the previous post for notes and references on the biology of the family. Remember to view full-size for the best detail!


The pictured specimen [BMNH(E)101522] is the property of the Natural History Museum, London (BMNH).
