PUPA

Spring break begins this week and I’ll be off to Oregon for a short while. While I’m there, Kojun and I will hook up for some intertidal collecting/coastal camping.

Working on a plate – a pupa of Homalota reared from field collected larvae. The genus and related things all live under bark where adults feed on fungi and larvae on small invertebrates.

The larvae haven’t been formally described yet so I’ll be doing that, and present along with it behavioral observations from keeping these things in the lab.
