Hi Guys,    Im working with a natural history wildlife documentary for digital TV. We are hoping to locate and  film some Ant hunting assassin bugs, Acathaspis Petax in Thailand. I have seen them before in Khao Sok but Im hoping to find someone who can help us source some specimens for filming. Please let me know if you can assist or recommend good areas for sourcing specimens.  Please post here or PM me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Not easy to find Mick IMHO, I have only seen 2 in many years here in central Thailand. Once at Khao Yai and once in Khao Khieo forest.
