A very beautiful Red Flat Bark Beetle (Cucujus clavipes ). These things are strikingly pretty, especially in the winter when most things are various shades of brown. As it turns out, winter isn’t a bad time to look for them, as they produce glycerol in their bodies and have high cold tolerances. • • • • • #entomology #beetle #beetles #coleoptera #bug #bugs #bugsofinstagram #arthropod #arthropods #nature #naturephotography #photography #photo #naturelovers #macrophotography #mkdiffuser #invert_macro #macro_holic #macro_highlight #macro_captures #earthcapture @bbcearth #insectguru #macro_alit #wholelottabugs #arthropod_perfection #indiana #indiananature

Ecdysis, the process of molting, is characteristic of the protostome clade Ecdysozoa. It includes Arthropoda (like this cicada ) and their relatives the Onychophora and Tardigrada. Also included in this group are Nematoda, Priapulida, and lesser known, primarily meiobenthic groups like Loricifera and Kinorhyncha.

Meet Plicosepalus, a hemiparasitic, epiphytic showy mistletoe (Santalales:Loranthaceae )  which lives inside and among the branches of acacia trees. Look closely and meet Iolaus jacksoni, the sapphire butterfly who eats this very mistletoe during its time as a caterpillar. At the time I didn’t quite know what I was looking at. I knew I had approached a bush of Senegalia (Acacia ) mellifera, but the flowers were certainly not the compound inflorescences of a mimosoid legume, so they didn’t belong to Senegalia. I figured the flowers must be from a creeping vine whose stem I couldn’t see, so I followed the blossoms back to their attachments, hoping in vain to find a recognizable plant which produced them. A breakthrough came months later and a continent away, hiking in a snowy stand of douglas fir and aspen forest near Nederland, Colorado. In the branches of the conifers were curious balls of extra stem and tissue. Dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium douglasii ); a parasitic plant whose seeds are dispersed by birds and germinate directly on the branches of fir trees, immediately plunging their specialized roots (haustoria ) into the xylem tissue to sap water and nutrients. Young mistletoes can live as a haustorial mat inside their host tree with little to no external structure, pushing leaves and flowers out into the world only when sufficiently developed and willing. After identifying the plant, I was amazed to find that the butterfly who I assumed was simply nectaring is actually a specialized herbivore of this already specialized parasite! It lays its eggs only on the exposed tissue of the mistletoes,its caterpillars eat only the mistletoe leaves, and they remain on their island of edible forage in an ocean of toxic acacia leaves until they are large enough to pupate and emerge as a tailed sapphire. No acacia, no mistletoe. No mistletoe, no butterfly. Like an ecological matryoshka doll, life nested in other life. ... #lepidoptera #loranthaceae #botany #botanyphotography #entomology #lycaenidae #acacia #kenya #senegalia #parasitic #parasiticplant #ecology #evolution

I really miss summer mornings 🌤 I raised three monarchs this past summer. Their names were Bastard 1, Bastard 2, and Good Boy. 🤦‍♀️ This photo is of one of them drying off their new wings before being released! . . . #summer #missingsummer #throwback #monarch #monarchbutterfly #butterfly #butterflies #insect #bug #plant #garden #pollinators #pollination #beautiful #entomology #warmweather #morning #summermorning

Caterpillar-of-the-Day Follow Along: Day 55⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The Unicorn caterpillar, Schizura unicornis, is one of the most common leaf-edge mimic caterpillars we encounter in New England. They do not simply mimic the leaf of their host plant, but a late season leaf ravaged by weather and wear.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Unicorn caterpillars have developed a taste for a non-native invasive plant, Glossy Buckthorn. We find more S. unicornis feeding on young buckthorn saplings than any other host. In the future, we hope to study how their growth and survival on buckthorn compares to their growth on native hosts.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ -------⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ • Caterpillar: Schizura unicornis - Unicorn Caterpillar⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ • Range: Across much of North America
⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ • Host Plants: Many woody plants but with a taste for Cherry, Birch, Blueberry, and Glossy Buckthorn.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ • Season: Caterpillars active throughout the summer and fall.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ • Where are they now: Unicorn Caterpillars overwinter as prepupal caterpillars in cellophane-like cocoons.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ -------⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you would like to follow along with us this year you can find posts like this one here on Instagram, follow us on Facebook, or just visit the front page of our website to see our expanded calendar graphic. For the best experience, order one of our physical Caterpillar-A-Day calendars so you can follow along, add notes, and learn more, as we go.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #unicorn #unicorncaterpillar #schizura #moths #mothsofinstagram #thecaterpillarlab #caterpillar #caterpillars #nature #naturephotography #science #entomology #lepidoptera #scienceeducation #naturalhistory #art #artandscience #buglife #exciting #insects #bugs #insectsofinstagram #followalong #lifecycle #2020 #macrophotography #insectphotography

Certa vez uma pessoa me disse: "Quem te vê aqui sentada, não imagina que acordou às 3 horas da manhã, dirigiu por 4h para chegar às 8h para a aula de Fisiologia". Verdade, e também não viram as inúmeras e inúmeras dificuldades enfrentadas durante este período. Mas sabe de uma coisa, as pessoas não precisam ver suas dificuldade, suas lutas, seus apertos, na verdade a maioria pouco se importa, e é isso que acontece, porque elas não precisam ver seu sufoco. Deus foi quem sempre enxugou minhas lágrimas, acalmou meu coração e me capacitou para concluir esta etapa da minha vida. Eu sempre tive este sonho. O de me especializar em algo, ao ponto de me tornar doutora no assunto. E este sonho veio regado a inseguranças, incertezas, sacrifícios, renúncias e muita dedicação. Corri atrás dele POR MIM, e não tenho vergonha de dizer isso. Não foi por meu marido, minha filha ou minha família, foi única e exclusivamente POR MIM! Durante esta jornada foi muito amparada, minha tese foi renomeada por uma querida membro de banca de "GENEROSIDADE". SIM! GENEROSIDADE. Tive ajuda de pessoas queridas, várias e várias. De Amigos queridos e até de pessoas que nunca me viram na vida, mas que contribuíram como se fosse a pesquisa delas. Além de todos envolvidos, tive o amparo da minha família, em especial do meu Esposo ❤ e minha filha, e esses sim viram minhas lutas diárias! Ahhh, este #tbt é mais que especial! Meu dia 05/11/19 será comemorado por mim a cada mês, pois foi algo suado, mas que me proporcionou uma das melhores sensações que já experimentei, a da realização de um grande sonho! #doutora #agro #entomologia #Entomology #mulheresdoagro #ufla #agorasoudoutora #fitotecnia #embrapa #embrapamilhoesorgo

Yesterday

Floki just slurpin with his shrimp face. I love giving my mantids water by hand like this. Been experimenting with wacky colors and background for videos. I bought some lights too. Hoping to get a YouTube channel started up within the next few months, so stay tuned.
