Tarmac Infestation

“As a keen entymologist, Catriona Stamp is proud to present her latest collection of tarmac bugs. The bugs leave behind a tarmac trail when they move, similar to the slime trail of slugs and snails.
The collected insects are here presented in dioramas typical of their native habitats.
These habitats have had an interesting influence on the variety of species: while France only has tarmac bugs and beetles, Britain, as an island habitat, also has crabs, while Hong Kong has crabs and some snake-like creatures, and many of its bugs and beetles have more rectilinear markings than the European species.”
