    Default Does anyone know what kind of bug this is?

    Just happened to find one in my rubble garden. Generally, it looks like an ant, only it's almost as big as my thumb. And when you get near it, it rolls it's abdomen up, like a scorpion. When you squish it, some orange juice comes out, like from a scorpion, and i think it had a stinger at the end of it's abdomen. Figured You might want to see it too.

    Omg that thing creeps me out on so many levels. ;_;'' I hope they don't live where I am, or I'm going to have nightmares!

    ...Anyway. On topic now. Scoprians are arachnids, so it's probably not any form of scoprian...since this bug has six legs (I'm guessing one leg got torn off because I can only see 5 in the pictures). You could try doing a google search of insects/bugs/scorpians/ants/whatever that are native to your area, and you might find a result for it.

    I don't really know what it could be, honestly...

    Usually, when i find something on the floor, i ask myself:
    1)What is it? - dunno...
    2)Wanna eat it? - yup!

    By the size, i too, thought it'd be an arachnid, but falls nowhere near that category. Googled it down thoroughly and got nothing similar. Well that's the last i'll ever see of them; the first specimen is dead, and i've sold out the back garden to a greedy construction tychoon.

    It doesn't look like a scorpion, since scorpions have eight legs (I only count six in the picture), so it might be an insect that poses like a scorpion to scare away predators (same way there are yellow-black striped flies that pose as bees). But I'm not an entomologist, so I'm far from certain.

    Crazy. Where do you live Doc? There are types of wingless wasps that look similar. I'm interested in knowing what it is!

    Edit: Hm, yes, raising it's abdomen as if to sting? Yeah, it's probably one of those female wasps that don't have any wings. Finding the exact species will be hard.

    I think I've seen these before. I'm not sure but this might be some stinky beetle. The orange juice has a horrbile smell to it to scare away predators. At least if it comes out while it's still alive. Hmm....

    Hi Dr, it might be a new breed of species. Maybe if you can send it to British Science of Research Facility, and if they found out that it is a new species, they can named it after your name. That will be really cool

    edit: wow nvm >__>; ~feels dumb~ I have no idea but I should find a picture of an even crazier looking insect I saw one night. I mean, I've never seen anything like either of these bugs before. But that doesnt look like a beetle.

    I believe it could be a stick bug, in fact I'm pretty sure it is. Stick bug change their appearance often so they won't be attacked, until the reach adulthood where they become of the regular stick bug.

    First the appear to be ants then scorpion then stick bugs

    The Australian Walking Stick is well-camouflaged in its environment because it can grow to resemble an 8-inch-long spiny branch with dead leaves for legs. The giant prickly stick insect curls up its abdomen to mimic the scorpion attacking with its tail.

    Oh boy I have no idea! But when I saw that image I nearly gagged! It was one eerie little critter I must admit (coming from a guy that is not to fond of insects). I'd have to say maybe a form of larvae or beetle though?

    Sure it looks nothing like a full grown stick bug, but it does look like adolescence stick bug. By the way there are over 3000 kinds of stick bugs o___________o

    I believe I saw that once in my garden too and it kept trying to nip the ants with it's pincers. I would very much like to know what is it too.

    From the description it could be a Pseudoscorpion but the picture isn't like anything I've seen. If it's really eating at you, try asking on http://www.whatsthatbug.com/

    I've seen quite a few walking sticks and it doesn't seem to have any similar features of them.

    No, it wasn't a Stick bug; as you can see, camouflage is nowhere in it's features. Plus, it wasn't in Australia; it's in North-Mediterranean grounds.
    When it assumed it's "attack" position, i knew it was trying to intimidate me, i've dealt with scorpions before. My curiosity led me to squish it to see if it stank and really had a stinger. It didn't have any noxious smell, and i don't think it had a stinger that i could notice; at least, if it did, it'd've been smaller than a scorpion's.
    I'm not thinking of sending it to whatsthatbug, 'cause they claim to be very busy, and might put me up on UNNESSESSARRY CARAGE.
    But damn, that could've made one heck of a McDoom's bug, if i'd've sent it to the brits. Too bad.

    My first thought was whip scorpion, but no claws and too few legs. Also, not indigenous to Europe.

    My guess? Large Ant. Many ants have caustic liquids to squirt out their rear when needed.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    There, I nitpicked at your inaccuracy. Formic acid is not an alkaline.

    I'm thinking it's a big ant of some sort. The segmentation of it's body looks pretty ant-ish, and as the previous poster said it could try and squirt formic acid at you. Wouldn't be able to tell you without a better picture and some better ideas of where you are.

    Orange juice? Did you squish it??

    It could also be a wingless wasp of some sort. Ants and wasps are pretty closely related, and all have a somewhat similar structure.

    Good point, I hadn't really considered that. But it is getting a little late for wasps isn't it? Oh wait, it is here perhaps not where it was found.
