Description

These have been swarming - Mid-late September, Central Texas. Never realized what beautiful metallic coloring they had on the ventral side.

I think this is Cotinis nitida and not not C. mutabilis but not really sure how to tell them apart.

Found inside my truck at a neighborhood park. I found another one of these inside my truck at a different park about 10 miles away a couple weeks ago. That one I captured and escorted outside. So either that specimen held on at 70MPH and found its way back in, or this species really likes Toyotas, or there is a breeding population in the cab of the truck. I am okay with all of these possibilities.

I got excited and thought this was an ebony jewelwing when I first saw it, but soon realized it must be a more-common (for this area) dark rubyspot. Still a new species for me, and a welcome sighting at Torchy's Tacos of all places. This one is my 25th Odonata species observed. :)

Beautiful spider - glad to finally find one in the wild and happen to have my camera with me. Somehow I managed to take 20 pictures of this spider and not get a good in-focus dorsal shot :(

It's not obvious in these photos but there is a patch of light/white scales near the base of the chelicerae which matches notes I found on bugguide for H. coecatus.

~4mm. Playing on a picnic table in a neighborhood park.
