We were visiting my wife's mother, borrowing her neighbors' swimming pool for our kids. I looked in the pool filters and noticed that they were trapping lots of small frogs and toads, so began a daily ritual of checking the filters and freeing any that were still alive. I did not keep count of how many I rescued, but Narrow-mouthed was by far the most common, I rescued at least a dozen live ones (and fished out a few that had died) over 6 days' time. This photo shows my single biggest rescue haul, all from a single check of the pool filters...

I don't have specific notes about this critter, but given that the date on the photo was a Thursday, I must have been leading the park's weekly night program and had this critter land on me.

This photo has languished for years in the "unidentified bees" folder of my photo library. I never noticed its spectacular legs until today! Identified in the BugGuide discussion group on FaceBook by Jeremy Day, John Maxwell, and Doug Yanega.

Second state record! Preceded only by Deb Kral's find in the southern Berkshires a couple of years earlier. Was just barely alive when found, lying on the road; I picked it up and it died before we got home. Specimen is now, I think, in the possession of the MA NHESP (?).

These moths were performing a bizarre whirling display, have never seen anything like it before or since. Video of the display can be viewed on FaceBook at

Have not seen another one since, but haven't looked very hard, especially since searching involves some disturbance to their habitat. The area was impacted heavily a few years ago when a dam was removed about a half-mile upstream, the entire area was flooded with silt and sand that had accumulated above the dam over the decades. The sediment has since been washed away, but possible that the event wiped out populations of several stream-dwelling creatures...

Seen during a field trip by the Massachusetts Butterfly Club (which hoped in vain to find a Bog Elfin, but this was a fantastic consolation prize, even if my photo sucked)

The two massive horns on the twig-mimic's head seem typical of this tribe. Not sure if the ID can be taken any further.... Update: ID was indeed taken further, thanks to Sam Jaffe of The Caterpillar Lab! https://www.thecaterpillarlab.org/

I thought for a couple of years that this was a Stylogomphus nymph, but while helping someone else ID a nymph of that species, I realized that this was actually a Lanthus. Dave McLain (Mass Audubon) informed me that it was L. parvulus; I'm not yet sure how to tell the two Lanthus species apart... My son (10 years old at the time), who sometimes likes to scoop water and sediment out of the brook and search through it for critters with our little magnifying scope, found this one. There was a smaller individual, presumably of the same species, but this one ate it.

Found on the snow. I had been having discussions with people in the FaceBook group "Insects and Spiders of New England" about how all snow fleas are springtails, but not all springtails are snow fleas, so finding this critter in the snow was great for elucidating that point.

I'm not actually 100% certain of the species ID; my identification skills for nymphs are rudimentary. But definitely this genus, and the location is just a few meters downstream of the site where Valinn Ranelli collected an erronea nymph during NEDSA 2018, and where the rest of us saw an adult erronea patrolling.

Using Joanne Russo's hand-held UV light, found at least 6-7 cats in the same tree! Photo 2 of 3 shows two individuals high overhead.

Found dead on the sidewalk just outside the Circle K, decided to use my breakfast container to carry it around...
