Calicnemia miles

Asahina mentions Calicnemia miles from Lai Chau, a specimen collected in May 1995. Travelling along the QL 32 on April 17 in Yen Bai Province, we checked a small stream coming of the rocks and found Rhipidolestes owadai and a small red damselfly. As you may have guessed it was Calicnemia miles. Possibly it occurs more widely in Northern Vietnam. I already mentioned the species a few posts back; here are an additional shot in hand and a close-up of the appendages.
