Did I finally get the Dahlica triquetrella parthenogenic female emerging from pupae?!!! :-) - Dahlica triquetrella
Wilton, Inland Barrens, Saratoga County, New York, USA May 9, 2011 Size: 4 to 5 mm
Best I could do shooting at the limits of my camera. ?? Dahlica triquetrella, potential wingless female, parthenogenic form clinging to pupae after emerging. Fresh, and alive. These sandy cocoons had baffled me for a year. These is a wingless female??
