Initially thought this was a plant of some kind, until it moved. Out on the open coast, very exposed, but under a ledge mid intertidal.

~32 cm long parasitic worm that emerged from a Mecodema sculptuartum. The beetle was found wandering around during the day and then overnight the worm emerged from it. The beetle was still alive and active despite the damage to it's abdomen (visible in the 2nd and 3rd photos).

Descripción

F. pureora for North island locality, U-shaped orange-cream mark on carapace, orange median dorsal stripe, denticulation of prosoma restricted to a cluster at the anterior of ocularium (eyes).
Extreme size and shape variation found within this species (and many other neopilionids) in adult males (confirmed by inspecting genital operculum). Tooth pattern of chelicera segment III remains consistent.
