ENV: Kerr County, 14 April 2005

Posted to TexOdes, TexBirds and TX-Butterfly

Travis Tidwell, a University of Texas student (under John Abbott) visited here yesterday to continue work on the life history of Comanche Dancer, Argia barretti. Though we saw no adults, he gathered a number of larvae which may prove to be A. barretti. He also caught two large larvae of a Macromia sp. for which i’ll post a specific ID later. Here’s the list of stuff that was around during his visit, plus my early morning and later afternoon work.

Several of the Kiowa Dancers i found i considered to be oddly patterned (positive ID by Abbott). Pictures are posted, with pics also of the Macromia, are at my recent Kerr fauna page.
