Tonight’s mystery is a straightforward identification. What is this insect?
5 points for order, 5 more for genus/species. Points will be awarded only to the first commentator for each category, and only to guesses supported by relevant trait information.
The cumulative points winner for the month of November will win their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my photo galleries, or 2) a guest post here at Myrmecos on a safe-for-work topic of their choosing.
