Trilobite Beetle

This mysterious and prehistoric looking creature actually belongs to the order of beetles. The big impressive forms like on this picture are all either larvae or adult females. The males remain tiny and look like a „normal“ beetle with wings to fly, sightings of these seem to be extremely rare and can only be achieved by observing females and waiting until a male appears.
