Specimen #01110, 7/10/2000
Wingspan: 4.5 inches (11.5 cm)
Composition: Sterling silver wire, steel utility blades,
Kingston watch mechanism
Collection Site: Deadwood, South Dakota
Comments: Those gems in the abdomen are bright red,
just like they are in the scan. However, the wings have more
speckles than are visible here. The "stinger" is a small,
underslung utility knife blade.
