Insect ID

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I received this insect in a trade with another forum member a couple of months ago. All other insects I could ID, but I can't find this one. 

It is from the Yixian Fm. of Liaoning, China. This formation is early Cretaceous.  

 

I finally got a new camera. The pictures are not perfect but I hope they do the job. Insect is a little over 1 cm.

 

Greetings

Thanks Herb, I will look in that direction.

 

No other insect experts who want to give their opinion?
