Invertebrates of Istra + pics from nature museum in Rijeka

Hi
At the begining I propose to rename this section info "Invertebrates and fishes". All pics were taken in surroundings of Medveja. Identifications of animals below are welcome. Let's start from the movie of nematode that I found twice in puddles with yellow-bellied toads, larvas of salamandra and grass snakes.


Now wingless insects

During snorkeling I observed inter alia nice red fishes, a starfish, cuttlelfishes and garfishes. On a beach there was a tree with many fruits underneath. Thus you could see a lot of butterflies and beetles feeding on them.
Hipparchia sp.

Cetonia aurata

Image

Protaetia sp.
Image

Purpuricenus kaehleri

Invertebrates that I found near our campsite in a forrest:

Aeshna cyanea from a bit upper place- a puddle with lots of yellow-bellied toads and salamandra larvae.

Animals from drier habitats:

Hi Michal,

Interesting array of creatures here. The only ID I can help with is the first insect photo from the museum. I was lucky enough to find these on my last visit to Corfu...

Owlfly - (Libelloides macaronius)

It's an ascalaphid, a family related to lacewings.
