2013 BIO 386 course – last collecting trip returning to Mesquite Wash
On Sunday, November 17, students of the ASU-SoLS General Entomology course BIO 386 had their sixth and last collecting trip for this semester – once more to Mesquite Wash. We collected insects along the river bed with receding water ponds and still relatively abundant activity; particularly for beetles, butterflies, dragonflies, grasshoppers, and true bugs. The proper way to record the locality information is “U.S.: AZ: Maricopa Co.; Bee Line Highway (Rte. 87), Mesquite Wash; 33.732267, -111.519228; general collecting; leg. N. Franz [replace with your name], XI-17-2013″. Thanks to all who participated. See more photos here.
