Renschinia and Palagalea by Hyrotrioskjan Renschinia and Palagalea by Hyrotrioskjan
Two species of an new family, the Palagaleidae. These animals are known for their big exouteral claws. Like stag beetle they use these tools to fight for the right of the mating, but the risk is much higher in this case, they risk to lose the ability to reproduce.
It's like boxing with your balls, and many older males indeed have scars and broken claws.

Ein solcher Körperbau könnte zu interessanten Jägern führen...
Ich stelle mir das so vor: Der Cephalothorax ist am hinteren Ende nach oben gekrümmt & der Abdomen (Exouterus?) liegt darauf. Somit würden die Krallen nach Vorne zeigen & könnten als Mandibeln eingesetzt werden.
Das Auge könnte wie bei Sellaoculus U-förmig gekrümmt sein, damit die Mandibeln und das Auge etwa auf der selben Höhe sind.
