Yana zolotoyamchataya (Chrysobothris chrysostigma). The larvae develop under the bark and the wood of various conifers, mainly fallen trees. Beetles copper-bronze, rarely black. Each elytron with three golden pits and high keels, the space between them wrinkly-point. The abdomen is bright green with purple sides. Length 10-16 mm.
Yana pine-tailed (Dicerca furcata). The larvae develop in dead wood of trees and shrubs. Beetles bronze, sometimes with a green tinge. Elytra with longitudinal grooves and reliefs dotted black spots in row, tops drawn diverging.
Yana spot fires (Melanophila guttulata). The larvae develop on poplars and willows. Beetle elytra rounded at the ends, in the apical third of the arcuate constriction. Length of 8-12 mm.
Yana softwood village (Ancylocheira rustica). The larvae develop in the wood of coniferous trees. Bronze-green to blue-violet color. Pronotum broad. The tops are cut short elytra obliquely inward. Length 13-20 mm.
Yana softwood skinny (Ancylocheira strigosa). The larvae develop in the wood of conifers. Beetles dark bronze, elytra and last Sternites abdomen with yellow spots. Elytra raised through the aisles in the form of one of the keels. Length of 11-17 mm. "
And, finally: Yana large pine (Buprestis mariana). The larvae develop in the wood of conifers. Beetles are large with elongated body. On the pronotum and elytra are smooth longitudinal keels, broken in several places deep pits. Dark bronze, copper or pits with copper-green sheen. Length of 21-22 mm. "
Or here's some more information on the "big pine". According to this source, it is even bigger: "Zlatko BIG PINE (Buprestis mariana Linnaeus) — A large beetle. Length of 21-32 mm. Dark bronze, copper or copper-green sheen. On the head, pronotum and elytra are smooth, dark longitudinal keels on the elytra they are interrupted by four pits having a copper-gold luster. occurs throughout Europe, the Caucasus and western Siberia. Adults are active at the beginning of the summer, are found on the trunks and stumps of pine trees. larva develops in the pine wood. "
Sib to all: Forgot to say that the jewel is also called "children of the sun" because they only fly in the sun.
Oddly enough, but he Vadim Petrov, who gave the first once-shaky zatsepochku — has been trying to distance itself from the borers: "Why Yana? The man that I ever said about it, not at all credible, then I wonder about this in our Zlatko said. Candidate may apply to dung beetles, or wood-eaters (Rhino), about them in the book in general a lot of information. " Rhinoceros beetle referred to them emblazoned on the first picture below. From myself I added a few more "relatives" of the Beetle. Clicking on any of the pictures, you can pick it up full original in new window.
In general, Yana — Zlatko, but still does not hurt to check and other large insects. No, I'm not giving up his claim that the right beetle — this is Yana. I just mean that I want to have the most complete picture. I would like to know — or not all bugs are using this mechanism. With these data, we can choose the most perfect mechanism antigravitator (shape, size and the ratio of cells).
By the way, I've been filing "Science and Life" for five years, viewed, — stumbled on Grebennikova release of his book "My World". I scanned out a picture that I "" is not seen (perhaps it from an unpublished chapter four).Back in the early 60s I was half an hour near Isilkul could watch a lot of insects, including those beetles chafer, shpanku, Pestryakov, jewel beetles, wireworms, tinnika, weevil. Now, many of them in areas disappeared.
That is, approximately, about this "bundled" beetles in order to study — and I'm talking about. According to my information, a few people have "signed up" for such research.
Igor Ivanov: "When I read the chapter" flight ", I remembered that he had heard about the beetle, which can lift a load greater than its own weight of 10. But what kind of bug, I do not remember. Their two similar -" Stag "and" Rhinoceros "- there is something to think about. I put "on the ears" of their friends and biologists hope they can help me. Especially since some of my friends are extremely interested in the idea. "
Mr. X: "I got in touch with the student Grebennikova (also an entomologist) talked for five hours, he promised to provide for research use his collection of jewel beetles in about a week. What I find out — I will inform you further."
Sib: "Here can order beetles — you will send them in the mail." "- I've already sent one order — waiting, sir … In April, promised to send."
At that drol once said that, too, will book themselves jewel. As you can see, the people finally came to the conclusion that the question "Who, if not me?" — There is only one answer: "If I do not — no one." And the more you have, the more accurate and comprehensive information we collect. IMPORTANT! The main thing — it is something to all this information in the first place flocked TO ME! Whatever you dug up, the first thought visiting your head should be: "We need to urgently send this Lordu Dragons." If you do not adhere to this iron rule, you are so, and we are all still up-for-Olgo'll crawl on the ground and look with envy at the sky …
Meanwhile, as our valiant Pinkertons trying to find out the configuration of the cells, it would be nice to think about the technology of small and very small volume reticula, as well as materials available for such technologies. I took a few hundred zhivulnyh needles (the thinnest needle that produces our industry), bit off all their needles ears and gathered them all in one single unit. — Get the punch to make the cone (more precisely, ogival) cells. The thickness of the needle, and accordingly, a cell size of 0.5 mm. That is, one square millimeter (or cube, which in this case is the same) can accommodate four cells. Cells can be placed "square" and can "rhombus" (depending on how the dialed punch) — in the latter case, the same area is more than the number of cells is obtained. Poke punch can thus, for example, the molten plastic poured thin layer. Or shaped cells of other suitable material.
How to mechanise the technology, offered Practitioner: "We take the old 9-pin dot matrix printer. Bringing the tips of needles into the desired shape (triangle, hexagon, etc.). Put in the printer aluminum foil under it loose paper and print any color (from a given color change steps between points) and get a perforated grid.'s just not the image (photo) of the pattern is not clear what should be the shape of the hole. then cast in plaster die and punch with relief (cell?, pyramids?) rolled foil between them and get relief plate with a pattern. " Let me just note that we do not need corrugated (but initially flat, as in this case), mesh, and the volume (you fancy yourself a cell?). Technology to modify a little. A printer — it's a good idea.
Note that the referenced forum etched foil technology Micarta or PCB, is unsuitable because used to produce a flat pattern. The newest technology using a laser printer — it is the same (for those who do not know). Offer your original technologies and materials. Robertson A forum said:
The shape and location of us, eventually, will be known, is just the stuff I remember GREBENNIKOV collected gravitoplan about a year, from
which it took some time to search for materials as well as wood material is scarce, therefore, he was looking for something else, but what?
He was looking for an organic material, such and similar in texture chitin. Wood, in principle — organics, but hurt the texture is large, so that for the manufacture of reticula not fit. Let me give you a small piece of Siba speech at the podium, he has a lot of things that I would like to clarify:
It is necessary to allocate a structure that has the effect, and to understand the conditions under which this effect occurs. What kind of structure — should be considered elytrae 800-strong microscope — judging by the fact that the pyramid in the picture are not small, the size of the structure are not important — most likely, as he wrote Dragons Lord, deal in the corners of refraction-reflection. The conditions under which the effect occurs consistently be — the lack of rain.
