More old photos incoming.

I avoided uploading photos taken during field work, but I've been given the go-ahead to upload them now. Odonates & Leps, here we come!

Major Takeaways from the AMNH

Mischocyttarus:
I'm much less confident about separating the darker southern forms of M. m. mexicanus and M. a. angulatus, and it's likely that I mis-ID'd all the observations in Mexico.

Agelaia:
Agelaia are way more difficult to ID to species than I previously thought, and pretty much all the IDs I've suggested should be reconsidered.

  1. As far as I can tell, A. areata is impossible to visually distinguish from the yellower forms of A. yepocapa (though it looks like the darker forms of A. yepocapa can be separated), a striped form of A. pallipes, and the yellower forms of A. x. xanthopus (by patterns alone).
  2. As far as I can tell, A. cajenennsis is visually identical to A. pleuralis (by patterns alone).
  3. As far as I can tell, A. yepocapa is visually identical to A. x. xanthopus (by patterns alone).

More to come as I upload my poor-quality photos of the collections to iNaturalist.

Bootstrapping

I'm working on interpreting a huge chunk of CO1 genetic data by building software from the ground up. Does anyone here know how Phylogenetic Bootstrapping works?

Please message me if you do. I've been metaphorically banging my head into a wall over it for the past five hours.
