Please post pics of you in the animal skin loincloth! Woof!


I agree with LB. I'm tempted to say no more bug ID until we see a pic of you in the loincloth.

You keep giving me difficult ones. It's a robber fly (Family Asilidae), but robber flies are so difficult that it's tough to get them even to genus, let alone species.

Keep an eye out for fig-eater beetles (Cotinus nitidus) on Homer's figs. They're big green scarab beetles, and he brought me a couple of examples when I was in Tucson last summer.


You musn't egg on DougT with pictures of bugs. it gets him too wound up and we have to hose him down at that point.
