On Sunday I found a fallen string-of-bananas leaf while out for a walk; hopefully it survives because the species has some interesting attributes I wish to experiment with
I have discovered another "aphideating party" composed mostly of what appear to be adult Cycloneda sanguinea.
Phaneroptera nana lives in my area! I thought it was a small pure green Scudderia sp. until a Bugguide expert corrected me yesterday. Today I took some more pics of nana and have put them below. They are on the same bush as the coccinellids.
Unfortunately I will probably be unable to do any katydid or coccinellid posts for quite some time due to troublesome circumstances relating to the front yard.
