Zigzag fungus beetle - Erotylus incomparabilis
Aptly named Zigzag fungus beetle, Erotylus incomparabilis (Coleoptera - Erotylidae) is an unmistakable beetle because of its colorful pattern of red and yellow lines arranged transversely in zig-zag.
Also known as pleasing fungus beetles, erotylids are bound up with large fructifications of the basidiomycetes, usually growing on weakened trees or dead wood. These fungus provide the only food for both larvae and adults.
Like Almost all erotylids, the Zigzag fungus beetle shows small holes (pores) on the body-surface, interpreted (though no exact study has been undertaken) as scent-glands attracting individuals of own species or deterring enemies.
Erotylus incomparabilis has been recorded in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
