Benjamin Coulter replied to Danny O'Shea's discussion Robber Fly - Laphria. Fredericton, June 30, 2015 in the group Maritime Flies (Diptera)
"This is a pretty good find. It's Laphria huron, which looks quite a lot like Laphria sacrator, but with an all black abdomen. If you happen to contribute to BugGuide, this would be a worthy addition."

"I think this is a male Dolichovespula arctica based on the medially-incised ivory abdominal markings. On V. consobrina the maculations from about T3 back are complete the whole width of the segment."

Benjamin Coulter replied to Tony Thomas's discussion An Ant Surprise in the group Beetles of the Maritimes
"Tony, the information you posted about temporary parasitism was still very useful. The queens of F. sanguinea group still found colonies as temporary parasites in the same manner as exsectoides, by infiltrating a host colony and dispatching the…"

Benjamin Coulter replied to Tony Thomas's discussion An Ant Surprise in the group Beetles N' Bugs 4 Birders
"Might want to double check this. It looks more like Formica sanguinea group, the slave-raiding Formica, to me. They can be easily distinguished by a notch on the clypeus."

"These are <i>Formica neogagates</i> group. Either <i>F. neogagates</i> or <i>F. lasiodes</i>. I can't tell if the scapes have hairs or not."

Hi Ben,

Welcome to the site! I hope you will enjoy it. There are lots of interesting discussions here, as you likely have already ascertained. Also, do have a look into the different discussion groups. There are some that delve deeper into taxa other than birds and are currently exploring Spiders, Odonata, Beetles and Bugs and much more. If you weigh in on certain topics, your input will be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
