Insects of the Amazon and Andes
A gallery of photographs taken by Adrian Hoskins
Photographs taken in Peru, 2008.
This website is mainly concerned with butterflies and moths, but on a trip to the Amazon it is impossible to ignore all the other fantastic wildlife, so on this page I'm depicting a selection of the more interesting beetles, bugs, grasshoppers, dragonflies, phasmids & arachnids encountered.
Clicking on any of the images below takes you to a full size photograph.
Erotylus sp. Choeradodis sp.
Erotylus sp. Tarantula sp.
Mysidia sp. Micrathena sp Lystra lanata
