Description

This little insect was walking on the outside of my garage, the lowest few inches of the exterior wall, on the West side of Santa Cruz. My friend and I picked it up and checked it out. I'm not sure what kind of walking stick it is (Indian?), and it's the only time I've seen one in the wild. How exciting! I didn't know until just now that they are ecological pests in their non-native habitats. (This makes perfect sense to me.)

I am not sure about the species - we saw some E. rustyus earlier in the night that had smoother-looking cerata more widely spaced. These had more pronounced tuberculate cerata and seemingly more of them, and more densely packed.
