Re: Brown Recluse (Loxosceles reclusa)

Thanks, I really appreciate that, William. No, I don't have any photos of the Desert recluse, but I'd love to someday. I have some bad photos of an Apache recluse from New Mexico I took in 2014. I'd like to try again on my next visit that way in a couple of years.

Re: Tiger Beetle?

Noah, did you catch the color of the mandibles and the other moth parts? Were there white spots at the end of the elytra?

Because of the time of year, it's probably Cicindela scutellaris unicolor.
