Marvelous tiny thing with a shrimp-like face. Last photo shows more of my hand for some scale: the top right corner of my left hand, just under my little finger. Tiny shell!

Big mahalo to @damontighe for shining his UV light on this beauty. The round things are likely diverticula of the digestive system, being pushed against its exoskeleton by a load of eggs.

Kudos to @nmcnear for finding this explanation on BugGuide.

On Montara Mountain (San Pedro Valley CP).

I've been looking up local manzanitas pretty much just on a whim and not out of any particular affection (I like manzanitas as a whole, but I haven't been inspired to tease out the species differences by looking at hairs forever), so I wasn't expecting to love this species. The overlapping leaves look awesome, like a protea or hops or something, and the hairs on the edges catch the light.

Description

First known wild observations and discovery of natural fluorescent in an old world mammal or any mammal outside of North and Central America, images of the Springhare taken in August 2019. Incredible to see it’s orange and pink glow firsthand, especially when it wasn’t expected! Accidental discovery whilst out photographing scorpions under UV light

Shot using a Nikon D850 Handheld with a Nitecore Chameleon C6 ( 365nm ) torch.

For anyone interested in February 2020 a Scientific journal was released by a American research group ( no relation to me ) about this UV trait and science behind it from research in museum & zoo specimens in the US.

There are a few more images, but you might be able to imagine photographing a rather skittish nocturnal creature on foot with a UV torch in one hand and a large DSLR in the other during a unexpected encounter whilst also trying to expose a camera correctly for UV light isn’t the easiest thing to do the split second.

Anecdotally a relatively recent introduction to Saba. There were certainly a lot of them.

Using the Field Museum's Key to Millipede Orders, this is in Spirobolida. (hard to see but the median suture line does extend upwards from the labrum)

Looks a lot like Anadenobolus monilicornis to me, but I'm not sure if there are lookalike species?
