1) The bug is golden with three black spots forming a triangle, and Jupiter insists that the bug's weight suggests that the bug is entirely made of gold.

2) Legrand makes a sketch of the bug, which the narrator says looks exactly like a skull, and then asks where the antennae are. Legrand insists that he drew the antennae very clearly, but when he again views the paper, he grows first red and then pale before locking the paper inside a wallet, which he locks in his writing desk.
