This larval newt was one of several found in a small, man- made pond that has lately been utilized by various frogs, toads, and most recently red- spotted newts. I would like to know if this is a red- spotted newt larva.
This was the only individual observed; we jumped it up on an unusually cold day in marginal habitat; Cardamine concatenata and douglassii are the only host spp observed in the area; minor amounts af garlic mustard are invading the forest edges
Is this a dobsonfly? Never seen this insect before!
