2013 BIO 386 course collecting trip to Mesquite Wash

Night collecting at Mesquite Wash

On Saturday, October 05, students of the ASU-SoLS General Entomology course BIO 386 had their fourth collecting trip to Mesquite Wash, a diverse and productive habitat located in the Tonto National Forest. There was standing water remaining from the summer rains and abundant insect activity, particularly beetles and moths. And good student turnout. The proper way to record the locality information is “U.S.: AZ: Maricopa Co.; Bee Line Highway (Rte. 87), Mesquite Wash; 33.731031, -111.514748; general coll. & Hg/UV lights; leg. N. Franz [replace with your name], X-05-2013″. See more photos here.

    Looks like you all had a great time. Who was the brave one with the scorpion? Are they still with us?
