Description

a few months ago I brought home a Entomophthora muscae infected house fly from Point Reyes to photography and study and to see if it could infect the fruit flies as I had read.

Well it appears the Entomophthora muscae has taken up residence with my fruit fly population. yes!

I saw this species perched further up hill a few weeks ago and was a bit perplexed because I doubted the stream was running, but lo and behold the stream is running, and I saw 4-5 of these beauties patrolling it. Photographing flying dragonflies under forest canopy is sort of impossible, thus: action shot.

After finding L. gracile at Briones earlier this week, I figured I'd check some more creeks to see if that was the common species in the East Bay. Turns out these are really common in the stretch of San Leandro Creek that runs through Huckleberry Botanic Preserve.

I also tried to check out the part of Redwood Creek that cuts through Chabot by the Horseshoe / Grass Valley trailhead, but that part is almost entirely closed in by vegetation, and where it's not it was both dry, surrounded by eucalyptus, and didn't seem to have any rocks, so not great Ligidium habitat.
