The invertebrate team members (Anita Howlett, Paul Roling, and John Schneider) focused on flower pollinating bees, flies, and wasps during the morning session and recorded all “bugs” on the light trap later in the evening. Considering the cool temperature in the morning and evening, the 84 species observed and more than 70 species recorded was relatively low.
The morning highlights included an uncommon Toxophora beefly, a beautiful green cuckoo bee, leafcutter bees, scarabhunter wasps, and an adult male Carolina mantis. The evening’s delights were the many micro moths, especially the beautiful Spotted Bee Webworm moth and an Alianthus webworm.
