Mosca Scorpione Panorpa communis

Appartiene all’ordine dei Mecotteri
Detta mosca scorpione, a causa della coda arcuata del maschio, un rigonfiamento rosso lucente rivolto all'insù, sulla parte posteriore del corpo, simile appunto a quello degli scorpioni, l'addome della femmina è invece lungo e affilato. Caratteristico di questi insetti è il capo molto grosso e prolungato anteriormente in un robusto rostro, al cui termine si trova una piccola bocca dotata di forti mandibole appuntite, le panorpe si nutrono prevalentemente di insetti morti o morenti, che vengono preventivamente triturati e sminuzzati.
A differenza degli scorpioni, questi insetti sono completamente inoffensivi.
Il loro habitat naturale sono le zone ombreggiate con vegetazione molto fitta. Gli adulti sono predatori di altri insetti, le larve si nutrono di detriti.
Lunga da 25 a 30 mm. Nell'accrescimento il maschio cambia la sottilissima pelle che ricopre l'organo riproduttivo.

Bonjour Silvio,
Image très réussie de la Panorpa communis. Le vert de l'arrière-plan la met bien en valeur. Bonne netteté. J'ai aussi photographié cette belle mouche l'année dernière, mais le résultat n'était paas satisfaisant.
Bonne journée

Hi Silvio.
Despite the DOF is shallow a bit, extraordinary quality of the insect reproduction compensate in any case this tiny shortcoming. Brilliant image of this amazing insect. Great details, sharpness and vivid colours. Nice green BG underlines the perfection of this image, Bravo and my best regards.
