Bronze Jumper (Eris militaris) - male
26 June 2016
Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland
County Road 2560 & Forest Service Road 900
Wise County, Texas
This male Bronze Jumper was perched facing down on our vehicle's antennae as we prepared to leave the site. Based on the BugGuide data map, it's evident that Bronze Jumper is a transcontinental resident of North America and as a result is an authentic resident of the Western Hemisphere. The Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland is administered by the US Forest Service, US Department of Agriculture.
