  • Bright Green Slug?

    September 2018

    This bright green creature was adhered quite firmly to a camphor laurel leaf on the ground. It looks like a slug but I have never seen anything like it. What is it?

    I found this little fellow under an old sheet of iron and thought it was a mouse, on closer inspection it looked different to the mice we usually get here. Can you tell me what it is?

  • Flying antennae

    July 2018

    Note the very, very long antennae of the cranefly Megistocera filipes. It also has distinctive wing veins and markings.

    I found this intriguing-looking insect in a sealed tank of tadpoles. Is it a cranefly and if so, how did it get there? Is that long extension from the head incredibly long antennae or its proboscis? I can't see whether the point of attachment is the head or mouth!
