I was filming in Danum Valley, Borneo... I looked down to find this female trilobite beetle (Platerodrilus) walking across the leaf litter. The female of the species doesn’t change much from the larval form but they can grow to be 10 times bigger than the males. They are one of the many poorly studied species found in the forests of Borneo and little is known about them, including what they eat. #BBCEarth #EarthOnLocation #Insect #Invertebrate #Borneo #Ecology #Wildlife

Leaf Litter Alien. Whilst trekking in Borneo I came across this alien looking 'Trilobite beetle' amongst the leaf litter. It reminded me how some of the most surprising finds are often at your feet.
