Butterflies #3

Another Heliconiid butterfly. I don't know what species it is but I plan to find out because I've seen it before with the name of it. This is one of the prettiest photos of this butterfly I've come across and I just had to show it to you. Expect an update on this post.

I hope to see one of these someday in the butterfly park the photo was taken at. I hope to go to this park some day too.

Update: The species shown here is similar to Heliconius sara which a pic can be found at:

The yellow admiral butterfly ( Vanessa itea ) is one of my favorite species of butterflies. I hope to see one in person someday. Isn't it gorgeous?
Note: I'll see if I can find anything on the butterfly tomorrow. Enjoy it!

Update: They occur in NZ and Australia.....Australia here I come!

The person who wrote this site got somethings wrong about the lady bugs. The picture that supposedly hosts the "24 different species of lady bugs" actually holds only one species in different color forms.......the Harmonia axyridis.... Scary I know.....But how do I know? Because the image is from another site about the Asian lady bug.

Here is the link:

Harmonia Axyridis The Evil Lady Bug....

Info on the infamous variable in color Asian ladybug Harmonia Axyridis:

This site talks about the problem they're causing in Britain with the native lady bugs and has pics of both H. axyridis forms native harmless lady bugs. Trust me this is bad......

Lady Bugs!

These cute beetles are also known as lady bugs, lady birds, lady bird beetles, and in China they called them "God's little fatties!" ^^ Cute name. And they're not always red! And they don't always have spots! More on those later. And they also aren't always helpful either......

The one shown here is the infamous Multi colored Asian lady bug ( Harmonia Axyridis ) cute isn't?

Reason of being infamous:
Eats not only aphids and other plant distroying bugs but it also feeds on other lady bug larvæ ( this has happened in Britain wiping out some of the native species completely and decreasing the number of others )! And they come in a vary of different colors and patterns. Some mimicking other species of lady bugs.

And then they're some that are complete pest too ( more on those later ). This isn't the end you know!

Pics of different lady bugs:

Interesting article on spiders

This is one of the most interesting things I've read about on spiders. The link is featured on the Venom List Forum.

I didn't know that this occurred in spiders. And now I know.

Spiders Again!

Spiders rule and this site says so!

I love this site because it has a whole bunch of info on them including, poems, pics, facts, legends, and more. I've known about the site for along time. And when I first came across it ( which was years ago! ) I said to myself "Jack Pot!" which it is because of all the stuff it has on there.

Enjoy it while I go looking for more stuff.

Sydney Funnel Web Spiders

Here is a pic of a male sydney funnel web spider for comparison on the Mouse spiders. Females are larger then males and lack oversized pedipalps.

Mouse Spider pics

Here is a pic showing both the male and female Common Mouse Spider. Creepy things aren't they?
Please don't confuse the female with the infamous Sydney Funnel-web spider female because the fangs on this spider are waaaaaaaaaaaaay bigger then any of the female funnel-web spider species.....

Mouse Spiders!

About time I do some thing on these don't you think? Here is some info on them:

Mouse Spiders - Actinopodidæ:

Is there such a thing? Yes! Look info!

They are 8 species of mouse spiders in Australia and they
are widely distributed across the mainland. They vary from 10-35
mm body length and all have distinctively bulbous head and jaw regions.
They are often confused with funnel-web spiders.

While mouse spider bites
are not common, a few have caused serious effects in humans, with
symptoms similar to funnel-web spider envenomation. Fortunately,
mouse spiders are not usually abundant in heavily populated urban areas.

Thank god! Source of info:

Caddis Fly Larvæ

It's about time I did something on these. I've been reading about both the adults and larvæ in the wonderful book I got for my b-day and I learned things that I've never knew before about them. I also came across a site on them while looking for some more info on them. It contains all the "basic" stuff on them and some time tomorrow I'll write some stuff down from the book I got and post it here.

Prepair to be amazed! And the pic shown is of an adult caddis fly. They're related to butterflies and moths but lack the scales on the wings and the proboscis. They're also in a completely different order Trichoptera. Now go and educate yourself on these interesting insects!

Marpesia iole

The Iole's Daggerwing butterfly ( Marpesia iole ) is one of the most beautiful butterflies I've ever seen. Here you can see some more pics. I just found out it's common name by looking up information on them just now. And I feel very honored to find one of my blog entries on the butterfly come up on the Google Search results here!

I'm pretty sure that this entry will come up on the Google search results too! And here is the Taxonomy on the butterfly. There doesn't seem to be much on this butterfly and it's life cycle and behaviour habits.

Thursday, March 01, 2007


I got the book that I wanted soooooooooooo badly! YAAAAAAAAAAY! Look here to see what else I got! I'm sooooooooooo happy! And tomorrow I'm getting Pizza! The butterfly in the photo is Marpesia iole and it's one of my favorites. I'll see if I can find anything else on these tomorrow.
