We had two hours to spare between activities and, as usual we had to check for insects. I only let him lift up one rock. In proper bush, we can lift up as many rocks as he wants. At a place like Serendip, it is important to respect the habitat.
Common brown earwig. Easy enough to ID. 🙂 I feel pretty proud!
Larvae. ID’ed as Stratiomyidae… which would be weird as they’d be 15-20mm long. Someone else said: Lycid beetle larvae.
Next time, going in for better pics. This time we couldn’t as we were nearly late to the meeting place for the second junior ranger activity. Seth found that a bit boring, as he’d spent 5 hours over the past 2 visits at the ponding site and we’d worked on ID’ing stuff together. The part where we got to see things under the microscope was awesome.
