Longicorn from Bali

Dear Tommy,
This is indeed a Longicorn in the family Cerambycidae, but we are uncertain of the species.  We will continue to research its identity.  The very long antennae

Probably Common Assassin Bug

This is a predatory Assassin Bug in the family Reduviidae.  We cannot identify the species, but there are some similar looking individuals on the Brisbane Insect website.

Update:  Thanks to a comment from Cesar Crash, we are in consensus that the closest match Pristhesancus plagipennis is which is pictured on Jungle Dragon.

Aphid Wolf

This is a predatory Lacewing Larva.  They are often called Aphid Wolves because of the large numbers of Aphids they are able to consume in the garden.  We often get reports of bites from Lacewing Larvae.
