Bart De Dobbelaer discovers a monstrous red beetle

I’m reading paleontologist Richard Fortey’s Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms right now, learning all about the weird and wonderful fauna of the Ediacaran and early Cambrian, so I was happy to encounter this lovely red arthropod by Bart De Dobbelaer.

Monstrous Red Plated Beetle

Bart’s big bug is of course thoroughly modern, lovingly mounted for display in his cabinet of curiosities.
