Caption: Harlequin beetle (Acrocinus longimanus). This beetle is one of the largest insect species in the world. Adult insects can grow to 7 centimetres in length. This beetle is a severe pest of tree plantations in its native South Americ. However, it is hoped that it may present some benefit to human health, as it is being investigated as a source of new antifungal drugs. Photographed in Petit-Saut, French Guiana.
