I caught this White-lined Sphinx Moth, iNatted, and then released. It seemed to be missing multiple legs. After being caught and lightly held in the cup of my hand, it started vibrating defensively. The pink of its wings could be seen when it flew.

Uwharrie River, Montgomery Co., NC

I am attending a southeast regional meeting of DSA (Dragonfly Assoc. of the Americas) in Sanford, North Carolina. This morning @richardyank and I headed due west of Sanford to a low water bridge across the Uwharrie River in Montgomery Co., NC where others had seen Septima's Clubtail a few days earlier. This species has a very small overall range in the U.S. in three separate areas. It's geographical range may be small, but it can certainly be common in local areas. Richard and I probably saw two dozen of them at this location in less than an hour. Images here of mature males, female with egg ball, newly emerged female and hand-held male.

Stripe-eyed Lagoon Fly (Eristalinus taeniops)

bugornot

Date

May 20, 2020 10:43 AM PDT

Description

This species is originally from Africa, the Mediterranean area, and the Middle East. It has been accidentally introduced into California and Florida. The adults are mimics of honey bees. Larvae are "rat-tailed maggots" (described by Perez-Banon et al., 2003). The "rat-tail" is actually a telescopic breathing tube that allows larvae to mature in stagnant, and often polluted, water (and other moist substrates lacking in oxygen). The tube allows them to "snorkel" at the surface to breathe. Also on the list of this fly's larval habitats, are rare cases of human intestinal myiasis — where larvae develop inside the human gut — that have been documented for this group. The breathing tubes of the maggots, in this case, would be located in close proximity to their host's anus to allow them to breathe.
