For immature audiences only

This post doesn’t need much of an explanation (except that I’d check it out before deciding to let young wandering eyes over here – insect mating photos but no snarky commentary…)

Went on a collecting trip to Killingly, CT – set up blacklights and a mercury vapor light. We were aiming to collect moths (I got a handful of Acronicta species), but we attracted plenty of other visitors to the lights. Here are some of the insects that were… rather… busy…

Enjoy! (but not too much…)

Dichelonyx sp.

Harmonia axyridis

Anomala orientalis

Photinus sp.

Geina sp.

If any of my IDs are wrong, or if you can identify something further, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!
