Insect pollinator on Blue Dicks (Dichelostemma capitatum ssp. capitatum)
About 1/2" long. Looked like a cross between a bordered plant bug and a jumping spider. Perched on grass in meadow.
Or a dusty Apiomerus crassipes?
Nymph. About 1/2" long; looked like a giant brown tick covered with dust (it was in the trail) until I got too close with the iPhone and it reared up and "boxed" at me with its thick, hairy forelegs.
1" long, very aggressive, found in Los Altos, CA
Or a Annelida???
Please help me identify this plant!!
I'm confused by all the subspecies choices! Could someone more experienced please weigh in? The ranges seem to overlap, at least according to Cal Herps range maps...
