What’s in a Name?

March Fly, Bibio townesui
As the month of June gets underway, we spotted this male March Fly (Bibio species) visiting the susquehannawildlife.net headquarters garden.
Great Brown Drake
And we found this Great Brown Drake (Hexagenia bilineata), a large species of burrowing mayfly, clinging to our building’s masonry wall after last night’s early June nuptial flight.
Green June Bugs
So when can we expect to see Green June Bugs (Cotinis nitida) devouring our discarded watermelon rinds?  Probably not until July.
