October 9th - Condylostylus longicornis (yes, again)

We're happy to announce another online meeting! Here are the details:

This next meeting is a review of a species we have looked at several times now, and it needs our help! There is still over 1,000 Needs ID observations of Condylostylus longicornis in the US. This week we will review the identification of C. longicornis and then try our best to reduce this pile of Needs ID observations.

Just as a reminder: our meetings are entirely informal, and everyone is invited to speak their minds and ask questions to the group. Participation is key to learning!

Please leave a comment either to let us know if you're planning to come or to subscribe to be notified of future events! Questions are also welcome.

The Zoom meeting will open at 4 PM EDT on Sunday the 9th.

October 16th - Review of Condylostylus longicornis and working on the Eastern Guide

We're happy to announce another online meeting! Here are the details:

This week is a continuation of our series with Condylostylus longicornis, and this week I think we can push through the last hundreds of observations. While we're working on that (after reviewing the identification features), I'll be working on finishing up the guide to Eastern Condylostylus!

Just as a reminder: our meetings are entirely informal, and everyone is invited to speak their minds and ask questions to the group. Participation is key to learning!

October 23rd - Condylostylus; you're not tired of them yet, right? ;)

We're happy to announce another online meeting! Here are the details:

Guess what! ... You guessed it; we are still doing Condylostylus! And we're having fun with it, so why not keep it up. We still have over 500 observations of C. longicornis to go through, and I just determined a new character we can use to distinguish the C. patibulatus group and the C. sipho group; come this Sunday to find out what it is and help me test it!

Marked Wing Condylostylus

There are three species of Condylostylus that we don't have a lot of information on, and that are very similar. They are C. inornatus, C. quadricolor, and C. leonardi. All three differ from other marked wing species by having the fore tibiae yellow. Here I will be adding information and accumulating links to possible and confirmed observations.

C. inornatus

Unlike the other species, the mid tibia is dark.
Confirmed observations:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/93545891

C. quadricolor

Unlike C. leonardi, the hind tarsal segments steadily decrease in length, and the border of the green-black areas on each tergite is diffuse.
Confirmed observations:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/123902280
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/123182305

C. leonardi

Unlike C. quadricolor, the last three hind tarsal segments are all subequal in length, and the border of the green-black areas on each tergite is sharp.
Confirmed observations:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/133698570

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/92814269
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/93199299

Females

of C. quadricolor and C. leonardi are distinct from females of the C. sipho group in that they have a dark posterior area on the hind femora.
