The genus Paramesius new to Hawaii

This genus Paramesius is newly reported from Hawaii, based on the observation posted by @Deptula https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/41970564 which elicited an independent confirmation by @kmagnacca who has collected it on Kauai and Hawaii in native forest. Not a great surprise as it's a widespread genus. Not sure if it...

he broad-headed bug Nemausus sordidatus spotted in Cyprus

🗺️ The broad-headed bug Nemausus sordidatus is distributed mainly across Africa and the Near East, known only from southern Spain, Portugal and Sicily in Europe. Whether this species is native or alien in Europe remains undetermined, although according to Davranoglou et al. (2021) it probably it has been probably introduced to Europe since (1) its host-plants Acacias are not native to the region, (2) individulas are found in man-made habitats and (3) all European records are quite recent...

The rosemary beetle, Chrysolina americana threatening native and ornamental plants in Cyprus

🗺️ Despite its name, the species is not native to America! In its description, Linnaeus mistakenly assumed the specimen had been collected from America. The native range of the Rosemary beetle includes Mediterranean countries, (e.g. Albania, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Serbia, Macedonia, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey), although after 1936 it spread to many northern European countries (e.g. Belgium, United Kingdom, Austria, Netherlands, Latvia ...

West Coast, EP. - 26.1.2023

Did a couple of dives around Point Drummond yesterday.

One on the south side at the boat ramp area next to picnic beach and another at Hall Bay.

Entry at the boat ramp was easy, however the slight WSW swell made for surgey conditions and low vis. Felt very spooky. Lots of seaweed variety on the rocks, some big fish (couldn't identify or get good pictures of), a juvenile eagle ray, and some sea-stars. Max depth 5m

Dive at Hall Bay was much better, area is very prot...
