I love it when my co-workers show up with jars! One of the other techs brought in these two specimens for ID: a male io moth and a runty male dobsonfly.

That dobsonfly looks like it could hurt you and if that's a runt I'd like to see a large one .

Usually the male's pinscers are at least double that size. And their bodies are about an inch longer. Hopefully they will be showing up in numbers soon. I always enjoy seeing them at my blacklights.

The Dobson fly larva, or Helgrammite, was featured as the monster model for the old sci-files thriller from the '50s called "The Tingler".
They also make good bait

Posted by Behind-the-dogThese Scathophaga stercoraria (yellow or golden dung flies) were attracted by some fragrant poorly composted chicken manure one day (many years ago, now) as I turned my compost heap.
