110809 Semakau forest
Yes it was good to be able to look over the commando mosquito infested forests of Semakau. Would be interesting to see what comes out at night there. First visit, so documenting every bug I see. Didn't bring diffuser setup so everything shiny shiny harsh harsh.
Probably Damarchus workmani, a burrowing spider (Nemesiidae).
Lynx spider Oxyopidae.
Marcus identified this as a termite nest.
Weaver ant carrying dead leaf fragment, which Marcus suggested was for cultivating whatever they farm.
Odontomachus trapjaw ant.
Weird moth spotted by Marcus.
Mushroom that wilted withing a span of 2 hours (8.18 am to 10.21 am).
Tiny rove beetles (Staphylinidae) about 2+ mm long.
Larger rove beetle about 12 mm long.
Probably ladybird larva.
Mating Dysdercus decussatus.
Alicia spotted this cute Salticid jumping spider on the beach sand. Looks like Hyllus diardi.
Another one among Casuarina leaves.
