Some insects really should belong to the alien world, even them. Great shot and find though :)

I'm not sure. Both can be females (one much younger) but also the smaller one can be last larval instar male.

It is possible. Most lycids are brightly coloured, some of them may be poisonous. I'm not sure if Duliticola is, but other animals may think that it is :)

How you find this awesome beetles? They seems like phantasy monster from a Videogame! Love the colors, are they dangerous?

Thanks.

When other people look up, I always look under my feet :)
I believe they are totally harmless.
