Little Things Matter
Awwwww. They are such cute ones.
Fantastic! Do you happen to know of a good source for thrip identification? They are crawling all over the plants I study and haven’t even begun to look for a source. Sometimes formidable insect taxonomy is too intimidating to me to the point that I become paralyzed and don’t even make an attempt 🙂
Thrips in the western US, ericaceae, or Arctostaphylos, to be more specific. Thanks!
you could start here:
This is quite nice! Thanks! (I actually think that I was able to identify what I have too many samples of!)
I like all the pix and the expert contributions are just the cream – a nice resource.
Crowd sourced science is the coming thing they say… (as long as you have a decent organization in charge and bugguide’s is outstanding).
I only see one, unless that is a second one in the far left slightly out of focus.
What thrips? All I see is that gorgeous Andrena.
That’s what kept me from seeing the thrips, until much later…
I only see one. Oh, wait–there are two more thripses.
