Small group observed in the same area from around this time last year. Located in a shady area with abundant leaf litter nearby. Located adjacent to and intimately associated with some moss and lichen.
Found single female under large rock. There were also numerous fire ants, millipedes, and other microfauna present in the microenvironment.
Two individuals were observed chasing each other around a small area, tightly circling each other and moving very quickly. Could've been mating or fighting, but I don't know a whole lot about this species. Any thoughts or similar observations?
