The sharp orange and black plant bug I think is Lopidea sp. Plus maybe a Ground Beetle of some kind?, and some shiny little beetles (to use the technical term :-) ) ID help welcome. Came to a mercury vapor lamp around moist deciduous woods near a pond.

Description

Looking for ID on caterpillar and/or host(?) plant (question mark because I didn't observe it actually eating this plant, so maybe it's just looking for a place to pupate). 3 cm long. Good detail; view large (left uncropped to show the plant.)

Somewhat resembles Panopoda cat pics on BugGuide, & we observed adults of 2 different Panopoda sp.that night: P. rufimargo (Red-lined P.; 3 individuals) & P. carneicosta (Brown P.).

Small (~4') understory shrub in moist deciduous woods. I have a (crummy) growth habit shot I could post, but not sure it'd tell you any more than that. :-)

Side view below. www.flickr.com/photos/anitagould/4794728037 shows detail of the hind end with the fake eyespots.

Description

Bob Patterson ID'ed Rich Wolfert's photo of this one on BugGuide as probably M. discalis.
Darned if I can tell discalis from quadrisignata -- for every supposed diagnostic characteristic in Covell or at BugGuide, there seem to be as many counterexamples as examples. My guess is that as it wears, the very darkest portion of the dark median band remains, looking like the narrower connection on a fresh quadrisignata.

25 mm across.

Sorry about the green reflections on the left side. This is a very dark individual (it looked black in the unprocessed photo, I actually had to push the fill light quite a bit to see the markings at all), but I think the ID is in fact right (comments welcome). Rich Wolfert has had a couple like this at his home in East Brunswick this year, too. Maybe we've got a little pocket of melanistic individuals in the area?
