Phyllopalpus pulchellus (Handsom Trig)

Phyllopalpus pulchellus (Handsom Trig)

Millis MA

These have been everywhere in south eastern MA this fall 2008. I often see them around grape and honeysuckle - although this female was collected off an oak leaf. The species is quite far north of its recorded range, it will be interesting to see if it sticks around year after year.

Dear Sam

you are right Ive seen these trigs every where. I must admit they are really cool and I even caught a few for pets. They are soothing when they chirp, although they give some people headache like my mother. I hope you take good care of those eggs. Hope to see you soon
