More Tibicen Tenerals from Blue Springs, MO

I have more pics of some Tibicen that emerged tonight. I will post a few but is there a better way to get you pictures? If I can upload without sending you the large files, that would be great. If you don't mind the emailed pic's, I can continue to do that. I would expect some Tibicen Pronotalis and Tibicen Tibicen to start emerging soon. I hope to find a Tibicen Auletes as a nymph since I have yet to find one.

Hey Sanjeev,

Thanks for the additional photos. Actually the whole object of collecting sighting data is to be able to add them to our distribution database along with the photos. This enables me to organize the sightings and to go back and refer to the record with the photographs.

Unfortunately though, identifying tenerals is extremely difficult especially since not much real work has been done with them.

While tenerals are always cool, the final fully schlerotized adult would be great in order to confirm id. As these stand now, they are very difficult to id and cannot be added to the database unless you know what they are.

Please don't let this deter you from submitting additional photos as it is still great content for the site.
