Sleeping Trilobite Beetle by melvynyeo Sleeping Trilobite Beetle by melvynyeo
Nice to find these during the day as they like to hide. Taken in Malaysia.

Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dulitico…
Duliticola is a genus of beetles of the family Lycidae. It is named after Mount Dulit in Borneo. The females stay in the larval form and are about 40–80 mm in length. They have a flat dark body with large scales over the head, resembling trilobites, hence the informal names "Trilobite beetle", "Trilobite larva" or "Sumatran Trilobite larva". The males are much smaller, 8–9 mm, with a beetle-like appearance. Most are found in tropical rainforests, notably in India and South-east Asia.

I wonder if they're closer to their watery ancestors than most other bugs?

The original trilobite were very ancient animals - you can find them calcinated, in stones some 250 mio years old. Strange to find the same habit nowadays in Malaysian rainforest.
Pretty shot!
