Comments

Very good work. I like your key characters and description of the site. Caution - color can be variable in the same larvae.

Hi Wetlands4Me,

Great work on all three of your observations! Your photos are very clear, and your descriptions help draw my attention to the important features of each specimen. You did a really nice job composing photos that really show off the identifying features of each species -- awesome work!

Hope you didn't get stuck in any of the poison ivy!

Keep up the great work!

Best,
Kansas
