Descripción

Mine is a casual identification since the animal is so illusive to get a clear shot but with the available reference it is highly possible that this animal is Cnemaspsis wyanadensis even though the original specific locality of the animal is Wyanad district, Kerala state, India is about 300 kms away from this sighting. But the climate in this location is nearly similar to wyanad being a high range sector in western ghats.
The camouflage pattern on dark brown body has 7 -8 nos.of fluorescent orange spots through the mid dorsal line.
Open for rectification of ID is wrong and hence require an expert eye one it. If it's right it'll be significant that this animal is an Endangered one in IUCN Red list

Size approx 4 cm. Seemingly juvenile.

Spotted on the bottom of a butter fruit tree. The dorsal view is shaky but can see the yellow bands (spots) on it.
(Excuse the multiple images I really can't delete the duplication strangely)

Spotted this specimen (body length about 2 cm) just being attacked by a swarm of Red ants. There are 19 rare species of tarantulas has been identified from kerala in 2018 and hence I'm leaving this for species level identification to the arachnologists.

Descripción

This animal has been spotted indoors but also rarely spotted in large groups under hanging rocks. This specimen has unusually long legs among with the longer ones are around 16 cm long and presumably a male individual. This specimen seems similar to European harvestman but is enormous than European ones with its much wider leg span. Click on the Third picture for a scale (finger)

The oval body is laterally compressed. The whole body is black which is also distinctive from the other reported species. Hence the species level IDying is leaving for expert openion.

Descripción

Hooded grasshoper in western ghats of India. Spotted at a hill station called Peermade near to Periyar Tiger Reserve. Seems similar to Teratodes monticollis but the absence of yellow-orange edge of pronotum, the distinctive white streak on the posterio-ventral edge of the hood and the reddish-brown tibia and tarsus other than green in monticollis suggests a different species. Identification needed.

Descripción

Spotted in a sandy near shore area at night. It showed more of a writhing movement than a skink like walking movement since the legs are too week and seems contributes less to the movement. Not captured but just photographed. Contacted zoological survey of India for species identification.
