Trucks and Trogloderus

Yesterday was a day of firsts.


Dumont Sand Dunes, California.

It it was the first time I got a truck stuck in a sand drift. It was also the first time I dug a truck out of a sand drift.

But it was all worth it, yesterday yielded our first specimens of Trogloderus! We were camping behind the Dumont Dunes north of Baker, CA.  They appear to be a different morphotype than any of the four known from Mono Lake located a few car hours north.

The next stops are northern Nevada and southwestern Idaho.
