Coon Bluff Collecting Trip, Round 2
On November 9, several students from our group came out for their 5th collecting trip of the semester. After some confusion, especially with the north-bound 202 being shut down, we all eventually managed to find each other on the banks of the Salt River, Tonto National Forest. We decided to collect further upstream of the previous collecting site. There was water present, but it was not flowing at the time. The area was rich with insects, including multiple odonates. Long-horned beetles (Cerambycidae) could also be found in abundance. It was a successful collecting trip, both in terms of group turnout (keep up the good work!!) and insect activity.
