Description

An undescribed (this being the first documentation as far as I’m aware) social parasite of Solenopsis pergandei that strongly resembles its host but with several key differences: queens are half the size of S. pergandei queens, have a smaller gaster/eyes, longer hairs, and a larger head relative to thorax. Cooperates in colony foundation alongside freshly mated S. pergandei queens with no apparent aggression.

Set up my cheapy DJ blacklights with portable USB charging packs in two spots. I had two lights here on a billboard platform near the bridge west of the Everglades Safari. More info about this easy/affordable set-up here: https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/damontighe/11836-diy-moth-light

This sheet was much busier than the other, which was on the ground about 50 yards away. The sheet on the ground also only had one light.

Seen while blacklighting during the 2023 Carysfort Bioblitz. Thanks to Trudy F for meeting me at 2:30AM to let me in to this wonderful area!. I set up two sheets about 15 meters apart (location listed is accurate), using cheapy DJ blacklights connected to USB battery packs. It was fairly windy, making for difficult macro photography conditions and I probably didn't do the best job at documenting everything at the sheets. I didn't photograph much of the extra tiny stuff (less than 4mm) due to the windy conditions. Mosquitoes were pretty thick, which also made it difficult to focus on the bugs on the sheet. I was joined by Stefan Rhoades and Andres Vila later in the night, and some of our observations may overlap.

I set up a sheet with two "DJ" UV blacklights on the edge of the dunes, one on the sheet facing the beach and another facing the dunes.

Seen on a three day solo camping trip to East Cape in Everglades National Park (Cape Sable). I was particularly excited to go shelling on the beach (did not collect any shells, as that is prohibited in ENP) and also try some blacklighting out there.

Thanks to Steff Leigh and the Broward Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society for organizing a great field trip to Miramar Pinelands! You can learn more about this awesome group of native-plant-loving folks here: https://broward.fnpschapters.org/

Big shout out to Jade as well for helping us find a patch of sundews and also taking me to one of the clubmoss spots a bit after the field trip.

It was also great finally meeting Anson, a young dude who has been finding all kinds of cool organisms!
