The spirits of Shui Lau Tin

Shui Lau Tin (水流田) is the area that I lived, the name can be literally translated as "Fields with flowing water"

It was a beautiful and relaxing countryside village with a lot of green when I moved in more than a decade ago. At that time, I could found many birds, buffalo, butterflies, fireflies, goats and stag beetles roaming around!! Unfortunately, all these became a memory as the nature of Shui Lau Tin is being destroyed. Only in the past years, 6 out of 10 of the abandoned field, bush forest or meadows were bulldozed. They were not stopping until every yard of land is covered by cement.

In the past 2 years, I have been racing with time and try to record any wildlife, mostly insects that I could find in the area. Many of them were found on a metal construction that near my home. This bug magnet was actually an environment indicator. I was happy at first as I almost lost counts of the species found. Then I was worried because they became rarer and rarer. Until recently, I have found none. I knew it's winter but it actually not that cold. There were still some bug record at the same time of last year but they were disappearing!!

The fact is local villagers have been overusing the so called "Small House Grant" right and try to build as many 3-stories village houses as they can apply. The building right was a policy to ensure the descendants of local had a house to live. Thanks to the outrageously high premise price in urban area, many non-villagers would consider to move in the rural area of New Territories. I must confess that I'm a non-villager as well. The demand of village houses is very high and they appear as quick as the fungus in spring. Thanks to the flaw in the law and poor enforcement, the policy became an unlimited money cow for premises developers and speculators. For years, villagers were tempted to sell their rights and farmlands in order to earn easy and quick money. We could not blame any of them as they could never grow that much of money by farming. A lot of farmers are getting old and they need money for their retirement. They didn't know or couldn't care much what they are about to sacrifice. We are not only losing our beautiful landscape but also our heritage. It was our next generation who paid for the cost.

All these reminded me the Japanese animation namely "Spirited Away" (千と千尋の神隠し) by Hayao Miyazaki, the spirit of Kohaku river (饒速水小白主) was trapped in the realm and controlled by a evil witch. It was because his real name was forgotten by himself as well as the people since the river got reclaimed during development. Today I'm listing the spirits of Shui Lau Tin here, I hope that they will never be forgotten!

I'm surprised to see this Snow White as it's only around 7 degree Celsius at the time I took this photo.

(20140212) - I saw her again laying on the same metal mesh. I was certain she flied away and return to the same place. It's probably due to the spot light near by.

Chlaenius (Haplochlaenius) costiger as suggested by borisb :

Trig. lew. is similar in ribbed elytra and coulors, but markedly different in:
- wide head;
- legs stouter and black;
- elytra without fine hairs.
and belongs into another subgroup of Ground beetles than Chlaenius.
I assume, your beetle is C. (Haplochlaenius) costiger Chaudoir, 1856.
It is not C.(H.) flavofemoratus, recorded for Hongkong on reference site:

蠼螋(注音:ㄐㄩㄝˊ ㄙㄡ,拼音:qú sǒu,音:掘叟)屬昆蟲類的有翅亞綱革翅目。蠼螋俗稱「耳夾子蟲」,牠們的雌蟲在產卵後會像鳥類一樣伏在蟲卵上等待孵化。

蠼螋,為不完全變態類的昆蟲,英文名earwigs,體長約小於一公分到五公分不等,腹部伸縮自如,因此有人深信牠們會爬入人耳,但事實上不常發生。其末端有由尾毛特化成的尾鉗,雌蟲尾鉗平直,雄蟲彎曲,生長在土壤中,落葉堆或岩石下,食性雜食。

此類昆蟲具有高度母愛,雌蟲會不時將卵表面清理乾淨,避免卵受真菌危害,甚至照顧幼蟲至離巢。
