Bold Jumping Spider (Phidippus audax)

Date

June 2024

Description

This is Phillip, the first initiated member of my very official LAS (Lanternfly Assassination Squad). While I did supply the lanternfly nymph, it was found within 10 feet of the spider. I was curious if the resident jumping spider was large enough to eat the third instar nymphs, and the answer is yes!

Description

I watched an ant attack and drag a spotted lanternfly nymph over the course of a few minutes. The single ant managed to hold on as the lanternfly flung both of them into the air multiple times. Finally, the lanternfly stopped resisting, and the ant dragged it down between the gravel stones.

This location has a large lanternfly infestation as well as an ant colony.

Description

Collected from a gall on Silphium asteriscus var. latifolium.

Gall was collected on 3 Oct 2023. Two Eurytoma sp. parasitoids emerged 25 Apr 2024. The gall and parasitoid adults were frozen (my incorrect assumption that they were inducers). I waited a week and fearing they were dead, and not wanting them to deteriorate, I opened the gall. I found eight adult inducers and five adult Eurytoma parasitoids. Additionally I found one larva that did not develop. All were dead but all of the adults appeared fully mature and several had begun tunneling out of the gall.

Note: Two Eurytoma adults emerged alive, I found five inside the gall for a total of seven.

Description

These two fought furiously over this spider (Uliodon, I think), sometimes trying to drag it in opposite directions, sometimes rolling around together for a few seconds before breaking off. A third individual also hung around but seemed unwilling to fight. I eventually lost track of which was which, so when one finally managed to drag the spider off while the other two were chasing each other and apparently searching for the now missing spider, I couldn't tell which of the three scored the spider.

This took place on the bouldery beach of Makiekie Stream in the late afternoon.

I've changed all the interaction field names from "Interaction: " to "Interaction->" to stop them messing with the photo tag processing on photo import. When adding photos already tagged with fields to the "Add an observation" page, it was only grabbing the field name text after the colon and so not working properly.

Everything works now that the colon is gone, so long as you use a recognised taxon name. For example, if I tag a photo on my computer with "Interaction->Visited flower of=Rosmarinus officinalis" and upload it, it will get this field added with the taxon Rosmarinus officinalis.

That can save a lot of time if you''re maintaining your own photo library in your computer and tagging lots of photos there and uploading them all at once.
