    So I found a few things while I was doing some cutting so I thought I share them....They are all crappy cell phone pictures but oh well

    This guy almost lost his sweet bug catching spot.

    Went flipping this afternoon and found some cool stuff. Sorry if it's a bit blurry.

    Pretty good sized beetle

    I've got a 50/50 chance according to bugguide and I chose Theatops spinicaudus

    This guy was a bit bigger than a half dollar.

    @Amoeba Ever seen the movie the Relic? You might look at that gecko a little differently. LoL only other place I've seen that scientific name.

    August rains bring all the pedes out.

    My roommate kept reporting giant worms to me and it turns out we were being invaded by Narceus americanus

    Went flipping yesterday (found two species of centipede) and came upon this little Sigmoria aberrans

    Good stuff! I'm loving that gopher tortoise. Now go find me a Drymarchon couperi. Then the appreciation gods will bow down before you.

    Do you see many Theatops or Sigmoria throughout the year? PM me if you find any more;)

    Are you finding all this on campus:eek:?
     
  14. Amoeba

    Amoeba Arachnolord

    I find Theatops very regularly, Scolopocryptops semi-regularly. That is the first Sigmoria that I've found but if there is one there are bound to be more.

    My school is a nature preserve...but this last picture set is from the bay area.
