      Yes, always intriguing to learn a bit about such complex life cycles when looking for an ID :o)
    2. Comment on Leptoglossus occidentalis on Oak 9 hrs ago
      Meaning that in future there will be even more Leptoglossus trying to get into our homes in winter ;o)
    3. Comment on Hiding like a pro ... yesterday
      Reminded me of little kids covering their eyes with their hands to "hide" in plain sight ;o)
    4. Ah, okay, but the map is displayed from your server it seems (something amazon-ish), so you store a "local" copy? Am I right in assuming that any edit/replacement or even addition of own maps would need to run through you?

      Hi Christine, I can't help with the ID I'm afraid, and I understand that this is set up to support your ID question, but what an excellent idea to document even "everyday" plants this way. Wouldn't it be nice to have sets of images like this for many, many species?! :o)
    6. Nice! Patterned a bit like 8Graphocephala :o)
    7. Nice camouflage :o)
      Hidden feature on species page? Where does the map come from (how is it integrated into JD - doesn't seem to be added manually ?!)

      This one is not rare, but easily overlooked - quite small @ 4-6mm, this one was a little over 5mm. Didn't get a single shot with the antennae in focus too :-/

      Thanks Christine :o)

      Currently, I can only guesstimate ... these are quite small and fragile, so I could imagine that the white wax coating helps in preventing desiccation somewhat? Or maybe it makes them less palatable for predators?
      Will try to read up on that and if I find something I'll report back (but not today) ;o)
