Night Walk At Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West (28 Aug 2015)

It has been a while since I last went to the Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West, so I decided to go there to take a look. The weather was still very dry and hence the chance of finding beetles was much lower. Here's a photograph of a Shield Bug nymph (Pycanum rubens) found under a leaf.


The first beetle for the trip was a Flea Beetle found on a tree near to the Lotus Pond.


Although I am not having much hope of finding many beetles given the dry weather, the reality of not finding any beetles after walking for half an hour was not so easy to accept. This Tiger Beetle (Cicindela aurulenta) was a welcomed sight.


More walking without finding any beetles, until this Long Horned Beetle (Coptops annulipes) was found at the base of a small tree.


More walking before finding a small 2 mm beetle on a tree trunk.


I was surprised and excited when I found this Click Beetle (Xanthopenthes schawalleri) resting on a hairy clidemia (Clidemia hirta).


After walking for a while without finding any beetles, I decided to call it a day and walked towards the exit. Just then I came across this Chafer Beetle (Apogonia expeditionis).


A few centimeters from the Chafer Beetle was this lone Fungus Beetle (Eumorphus quadriguttatus quadriguttatus).


It was about 50 meters from the exit where I found this lovely Net-winged Beetle.


The last beetle for the trip was another Chafer Beetle, found near to the Net-winged Beetle.


Although the number of beetles found during the trip was not so good, the types of beetles found were still interesting.
