Doing research at a misty mountain of Sarawak (在雲霧繚繞的山尋找螃蟹)
Tree hopper & a tiny snail
Begonia sp. "silver form"
After capturing & observing this new species of mountain crab closely, we are shocked to find out this new crab is not Bakousa but it is a Lepidothelphusa!!! A new record of finding Lepidothelphusa outside Sarawak river basin!
Another new species of mountain crab (genus name is Bakousa)....dark purple coloured crab found near the habitat of Lepidothelpusa crab. What a fruitful day!
Metallic blue beetle
Clearing forest for oil palm :-(
