Photo prise pres de Saint-Laurent du Maroni, Guyane francaise le 24 janvier 2017. Je pense que c'est un coleoptere . Si vous pouvez identifier ?

Interesting... Not a beetle to me. It looks like some Hymenoptera (wasps etc.). It has no wings, which would usually mean it's an ant (family Formicidae) or a velvet ant (family Mutilidae), but I think it's neither (the legs are too short and it has almost no hairs). ???

Do you have photos from other angles?

Cheers, Auke
