For the third time in a row, I found a mysterious life-form inside my house. I live in the Netherlands in the Eindhoven region, in a city called Oss near a forest area. Before I set it free outside, I put it in a jar to make a few pictures for identification purposes. What is this creature?

  • $\begingroup$ How big is this bug? Do you have a photo where the markings on the back can be seen better? $\endgroup$ – Chris Feb 6 '14 at 13:21
  • $\begingroup$ Wow, the site is getting bigger, we actually already have a question about this insect (or a very close cousin), voting to close as a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – terdon Feb 6 '14 at 13:24
  • $\begingroup$ @Chris The creature is about 3~4 centimeters long, including the legs. If I'd have to estimate the body, I'd say roughly ~2 centimeters. terdon; It does not seem to be the same one? $\endgroup$ – Roel van Uden Feb 6 '14 at 17:58
  • $\begingroup$ @terdon I think so, too. Its hard to say which one exactly from the images since the back is not clearly visible. $\endgroup$ – Chris Feb 6 '14 at 19:33
