Luscaforpex by Hyrotrioskjan Luscaforpex by Hyrotrioskjan
A very strange cuspipodid from the upper branches of the Mundodendralis forest. 
Luscaforpex uses its exouterial claws to hang from the underside of branches. Its a nocturnal animal and a ambush pradator. It hunts smaller flying cuspipodids by producing a irresistible smelling secretion from. When the prey is coming near enough the Luscaforpex uses its many legs to grap it and to bring it between its rough tonguelips which grate it into small pieces. Because females lost their Exouterus after the mating, they have two elongated hind limbs which they use alternatively until the organ is regrown.

This is probably one of my favourite cuspipods. At first though, I thought it lived beneath the water's surface like a water boatsman. :P (Lick)

Wow, now that is a very cleaver ambush strategy. And this design is really different.

Cool predator. That reminds me, do any Silvanians have interesting larval stages?

Cool, it looks like a good underside shot, though technically on a hanging one its not bad.

So it fools flying cuspipodids into thinking that it is a flower.
