  1. Looks like a Melanopline grasshopper nymph. No way to go to species on it since Melanoplus is one of the most difficult acridid genera to ID as adults, let alone nymphs.
  2. Location would help. I'd be willing to bet this wasn't in Manitoba
  3. Family is Hypogastruridae - http://bugguide.net/node/view/16160
  4. Not a bat expert, but I think it looks good for big brown bat.
  5. Hadrurus sp.
  6. Agreed, lots of Romalea microptera
  7. 1. Agreed 2. Misumena sp. 3. Steatoda sp. 4. Philodromidae 5. Philodromidae 6. Agreed
  8. Ants are really tough. I don't usually try to ID them past genus without them on a pin. And there are always the weird basal groups that look really waspy. Ah, the wonderful mess that's Hymenopteran taxonomy!
  9. Looks about right, but there are a lot of Camponotus that look similar to that unfortunately.
  10. That's awesome, CanadianCodhead, I'll definitely look into that one more once I'm for sure going to Maine!
  11. That's a big girl! Probably Tigrosa helluo. http://bugguide.net/node/view/45881/bgimage
  12. Thanks for the recommendations! I haven't looked at Kaufman's guide yet. I have his general insect version somewhere and I'm not a fan of it, so hopefully a more specific book will suit me better. I'll have to check out those other books as well. I've heard the Butterflies Through Binoculars books are pretty good and I'll have to see the Butterflies of the East Coast one too since one of the places I'm looking to visit is Maine.
  13. My goals are to get out more and try to ID and photograph as many odes as I can (mainly photograph). I had a decent enough list last year for starting late in the season (~20), but unfortunately my computer crashed and I lost all my photos and checklists Backing everything up very frequently now and just getting ready for things to start showing up again.
  14. Agreed with lighter than normal red tailed.
  15. Sorry, I always get Spharagemon and Trimerotropis mixed up. It's Trimeritropis maritima
