    We found three S. heros plings last night (were able to collect two). There were two of us idiots hiking in the rain last night and we both got to keep one.

    We caught 17 Paraphrynus carolynae in one night this friday! A record.

    Holy necro-threads, Batman! (It's only a year old... surely it's not too late to get in on the fun?)

    I will be heading over to Arizona next weekend - plan is to visit my brother in Phoenix on Friday night (June 8th), then head down to Tucson on Saturday, spend the night, and back home on Sunday. Would love any tips (or company?) for good spots to collect various inverts either in the Phoenix area (I may have a couple of hours free in the afternoon, before meeting up with my brother) or in the Tucson area. I teach summer school classes for elementary/middle school students, so I try to make a few collecting trips every year before classes start, so I can have an assortment of cool new things to show the kids, in addition to my already extensive "bug zoo."

    Unfortunately I didn't check the board all week and missed you. Maybe next time. This weekend a big storm is rolling in. It is finally S. heros season. I'm planning on going out tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully it will pour rain all weekend.

    Good luck! It was so dry when I was there, I didn't see a single centipede. (I did pick up a couple of Paraphrynus carolynae and some spiders, though!)
