Descripción

A small tiger moth, 10mm in length from forehead to wingtip. White with dark brown patterns. All moths under the Adites genus look very similar. This one is probably an Adites curvata, but could be a new species as well.

Descripción

An awesome gliding tree frog which is rare and endemic only to good primary rainforest in Borneo. Looks similar to the Wallace's flying frog which is larger and more common but lack of the bluish pigment. Described not too long ago. This is one of the most beautiful frogs in Borneo but not much is known about this species as it usually stays up in the tree canopy.

This is a male Crab Spider (Thomisidae).
It's size is approximately 3mm.
I know it is a male because male crab spiders are small and have swollen pedipalps.
It's head and abdomens are black.
It's legs are semi-transparent with few black marks.
It's eyes are like horns and bumps on it's head.

Black hairs cover it's abdomen.
It's brown legs are covered with less grey hairs.
It's abdomen is spotted by to rows of yellowish dots.
It is most probably a female because female spiders always raise up their young.
I didn't get the chance to take even a glimpse of it's head because it keeps on covering it's head as if it is shy.
It's spiderlings have no coloration yet. Update: This is a Pritha species, a type of spider that have eyes clustered tightly together in the middle of the carapace. They create holes in soil or earth and filled it with silk until the entrance.

A Daddy long legs a.k.a. Harvestman a.k.a. Opiliones.
This Sclerosomatidae species is common but I still can't identify it yet.
Harvestmen normally have 8 legs but this species usually have 7 legs only.
I'm not sure of this 7-legs phenomenon.
It has a grayish blue central body, orange pedipalps, orange long thin legs and black marks at it's leg joints.
It's front 2 legs act as antennas, always lifted high and active to examine it's surrounding.

Finally got this one identified. It is a female Mintonia silvicola jumping spider (Salticidae). Closely related to the Phaeacius genus, they have the same habitat preference.
This species have 2 black triangular marks on the sides of it's abdomen.
I've measured it's length, 8mm from forehead to spinnerets.
It is a female.
It's third pair of eyes (counted from it's front) are large if compared to other jumping spiders.
Camouflages itself on tree trunks, tree barks and wait quietly for prey to come close.

2 spiders in this spotting from a same species but with some variation either sex or age.
The first 2 pictures is the first spider while the rest of the picture is another individual.
The best name I could think of to describe this species is "Stone Spider" because they lives under small stones, but the name was taken by Drassodes lapidosus already. I thought they are either Corrinidae or Zodariidae (Storena sp.) but now I am thinking they looks more like a Asagena species (Theridiidae).
The second one is a male, the first one looks a like a male too.
I found them both under the same stone, with an egg attached underneath (spherical, small and white).
The 1st spider is 6.5mm while the 2nd is 5mm.
The second spider has a dark maroon abdomen while the first spider is black.
The first spider has 2 pairs of white lines while the white pattern on the second spider is much more elaborate.
They do not make airborne webs but they weave under stones.

It's a Longhorn Beetle - Cerambycidae.
Lamiinae maybe.
It's body length is approximately 50mm.
It's antennas are very long and thick, a common trait of Longhorn beetles of having the longest antennae in the beetle order.
Most of the Longhorn Beetles don't antennas as thick as this species.
The length from one end of an antenna to another antenna's end are more than twice it's body length.
The beetles thorax is rough.
It's black eyes are modified such a way that it's antennas are in the middle of their eyes.
It's head is armed with a pair of strong mandibles.
The brownish patterns of the beetle's fore wings resemble the traditional native Iban shield's patterns http://www.primitivetribalart.com/Images/B196Shield.jpg , well, almost.

A moth from the Saturniidae family.
Identified as Antheraea assamensis.
Saturniids are among the largest moths in the world.
The huge moth has a wingspan that could easily cover your hands.
There are actually 4 spots / dots on the moth's wings.
2 dark orange dots on each side of the fore wings.
2 more darker spots on it's hind wings.
It's antennas are thick with "fur".
See the small moth below the large moth, it is about 1.2cm, so by comparing it's size with this giant species, I can estimate that it's wingspan is around 15cm / 150mm.

An orange ant species I found marching on a tree trunk.
There are 2 ant individuals in this spotting.
A soldier ant and a worker ant.
The first 3 pictures is the soldier ant while the last one is the worker ant.
The soldier ant has smaller eyes than the worker ant, but it's body is larger.
The 2 ants' mandibles are different from each other too.
The soldier ant has a pair of tough mandibles (for biting, fighting) while the worker ant's smaller mandibles are for working.
I'm not sure how large is the worker ant, the soldier ant is 9mm in length (mandible to abdomen tip).
There is a black spot under it's abdomen, or rather inside it.

Opiliones (harvestmen), an order of Arachnids.
Malaysian Harvestmen / Daddy Longlegs are different from the western harvestmen.
The harvestmen here are usually small-bodied with skinny long legs and short pedipalps, from the Sclerosomatidae family.
This type of harvestmen are the "outdoor" type, not like the another type of harvestmen here that only stays inside tree barks.
This species does not have a horn, which is rare.
Most of the harvestmen species here are equipped with at least one horn / spike.

A strange running creature about 6mm.
Black legs and body.
The sides of it's body are lined orange.
There is a white dot on the back of it's abdomen.
At first I thought that this bizarre creature is an arachnid, some large mite species.
But after some close observation, I realized that it has too much body segments to be an arachnid and it's front pair of legs look more like a pair of antenna.
So I think it is an insect's young.
Thanks to martinl, I have now know that is a female Psyllid bug (Psyllidae) of the Hemiptera order.

A female Neoscona vigilans spider.
This species is very common here in Sabah Tea Garden.
Some individuals may show pairs of white spots on their abdomen such as another individual in the last photo.
It is difficult to spot them in the day time but at night, they come out to build their webs. Most of the small webs are built on small plants.
Larger individuals build their web from the tree branch to the ground that can reach more than 1 meter.
The 2nd picture is a lot blur. It shows the spider crawling on my hand and my camera didn't focused well on it.
