Rhombus....an oblique-angled equilateral parrallelogram having four equal sides >
Rhombic....having the form of a Rhombus >
Rhombic Leatherbug (Syromastus rhombeus) 9-11mm body lenght. Local to coastal regions in southern England and also a few scattered inland sites.
A few days ago, while out walking in one of my local nature reserves, I came across a large patch of (I think?) Common Chickweed (Stelllaria media), on closer inspection I found that it was covered in lots of these stunning Leatherbugs..a cue for a photo session!
What it's all about...
What do you call this shape then?
Who you looking at?
Way more interesting than the geometry lessons I had at school!
