Hello there, I am from India. Previously i have asked you question regarding the insect i want top know but because of some email issue. I was not able to receive your answer as I typed a wrong email. I am again asking you question but now of 2 insects. I was in forests of Jim Corbett ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Corbett_National_Park ), in Uttarakhand, India, and i saw this insect on wooden board. I am very curious in knowing the names of different insects and their species, etc. The other insect I saw in Manesar ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manesar ),in Gurgoan, India. It was on a stone. I also want to know its name and species. I hope you will answer again. I will be very thankful if you will do so. And yes please tell me if these insects are poisinous or not. Greetings from India.  
Thank-you.
