Wondering if anyone could point me in a good direction to find S. Heros in Colorado. From my understanding they are very rare here... Thanks!

Just a crazy thought, but if they're very rare where you live, why don't you just leave them be?

Is there a particular reason you want to collect them in Colorado? As opposed to driving south to where they may be more common?

Not necessarily opposed to driving somewhere else! Although something about finding a species local in your state is always cool!

I have never heard of them being in Colorado, which is testament in of itself to their rarity. I think your best bet would go to their known range in Colorado after a rainstorm and start looking.

Thanks,
