Monday Night Mystery

The Monday Mystery returns with an especially odd insect antenna:

To what sort of insect does this bizarre instrument belong?

To earn points, be the first to correctly guess:

  1. Order (2 pt)
  2. Family (3 pts)
  3. Subfamily (5 pts)

The cumulative points winner for the month of January will take home their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my photo galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.

Good luck!

  1. I think Kojun has the taxon. You don’t mention points for naming the structure, but these would be some of the medial antennomeres. I’ve seen photographs of species of Cerapterus – associated with Myrmicaria spp. in Malaysia – with similar looking antennae.
