    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology.SE! Identifications questions should include: 1) one or more clear closeup photos of the organism (photos from multiple angles if possible) — photos must be uploaded (not links); 2) the location (e.g. country and region — the more specific the better) where you observed this organism; 3) habitat information; and 4) an estimate of the size of the organism. Please edit your post to include this essential information. ——— Please also take the tour and then go through the help center pages starting with How to Ask questions effectively on this site. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – tyersome Jun 9 at 21:48
