We had a more productive day today and found several insects, including the one shown above. I’d like to have a better picture, but that will have to wait for a microscope photo; this is the best my hand-held camera can do with a 1 mm insect in the field. Below are two waterbug nymphs (the one on the right includes only the posterior portion):
Unfortunately, this specimen is missing the head, but the feet are well preserved. The back legs are somewhat oddly preserved, with one leg tucked under the body so that both feet are on the same side of the vertebral column (the arrows are pointing to the back feet):
The weather is supposed to turn bad tomorrow, so this may be our last day at Solite this week (Tuesday was supposed to be our last day). In anticipation of the rain, we removed a large amount of the insect bed to bring back to the museum for later examination.
