I spotted this guy (below) near the trash cans. I know it doesn't look very appetizing but you will have to trust me that it is a moth pupa:

Here is the count from last night's haul (excluding some of those bugs ofwhich we got just a very few):
Crickets - 35
PDB's (predacious diving beetle) - 59
WSB's (water scavenger beetle) - 38
Belastoma - 29
Water scorpions - 86
Lethocerus - 74
Dragonflies - 91
Fishing spiders - 3 (2 of these are the smaller species we use most often,but 1 is a large but thin female of Dolomedes tenebrosus. She's at IRF and,we hope, getting fattened up.)
Very productive and fun night. Hope y'all had fun!

It was an overall dry run....in more than one way......it hadn't rained in a while....and unless Strategus is your only bounty........dry run fits there as well. Oh well.......next time!

Click on the following link and scroll down to the last two photos which are A. sayii.
A similiar species, Atomosia rufipes has a bit of black on the legs. To see a photo of A. rufipes, click on the following BugGuide link.
Note that it is an excellent match for yours except for the touch of black on the legs. There are no images of A. sayii on BugGuide. I suggest that you tightly crop the images and submit both of them to BugGuide. The photo of A. rufipes is a good example of desired cropping.
