"Thank you, Tony, for the input. It's good to get an expert opinion. I wasn't sure it fit 2366 either, which is why I posted it here and also to BugGuide."

Balsam Shootboring sawfly evidence.

I found these balsam fir bud rosettes along a trail in Fredericton, 24 May 2017. This is the bud's reaction to the presence of a grub situated within the centre of the bud. The culprit is a sawfly:XYELIDAE Xyelinae: Pleroneura bruneicornis - Balsam Shootboring SawflyI see one or two isolated rosettes every year or so, but this is the first time in many years that I have seen several on a small fir, These sawflies are a pest of balsam fir Christmas trees.See …See More

Metallic leaf beetles, and a question

These balsam fir buds had at least two pairs of mating leaf beetles. I'm guessing they are in the Donaciinae, Aquatic Leaf Beetles.NOTE: Two species represented here. The beetles, and whatever created the balsam fir bud rosettes. Can anyone guess? I'll give you the answer later tonight, unless someone guesses before then.…See More

"Was reading BG page on that species. http://bugguide.net/node/view/2011 There Is a link to a nice utube video of a pair mating. The female is huge compared to the male. If this is it then this must be a female."

Hi Chris,
I applaud your suggestion for a group on moths! Would you like to add the group? I will certainly join, but I do not feel "up" to the level of being able to moderate it, although I can (and will) help with the technical (web-based) stuff.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for joining the dragonfly group! Although this site was originally called Birding New Brunswick, we definitely enjoy discussing all nature related topics that touch on nature in the Maritimes. If there is anything with regards to the function of the site in general you have questions about, there are lots here who are definitely happy to help. Like Bug Guide, we all all a bunch of volunteers trying to make sense of the natural world and still learning lots ourselves, but so far it has been a blast and has worked out very well. Enjoy!
