A new downloadable ebook. Check it out!

The cerambycid beetle illustrated at the right is a soon to be described Eustathes sp. from Bukidnon province in the island of Mindanao. This was according to my friend, Eduard Vives who was here for a visit. If not for the characteristic structure of the pronotum, it can easily be confused with the other Astathini genera Bacchisa and Astathes as there are also other species of said genera that displays the same elytral marking.

This will be the second species of the genus to occur in the Philippines. The other is Eustathes flava NEWMAN 1842 which is very common in most islands of the country.
