Coelocnemis sp. - Coelocnemis californica - Male
Arrowrock reservoir, Idaho, USA
July 6, 2014
Collected these in August, just got around to taking some pictures of them. They were found under debris next to rotten logs, and under pine bark. Found at high elevations. Can anyone get them down to a species? The images were taken on December 31, 2014.

I may've been wrong about the
I may've been wrong about the date field. See discussion here.

 
Well they look no different than the day they were collected...
So I think the capture date should be listed, rather than the date I actually took the picture, which was several months later, in winter, when you would almost never find any in the wild, as I was keeping these as pets, (I still have one live male actually).

Hey, mind if I mention you on my blog?
And say that you were the one who identified them?

 
Awesome man!
Thanks for the ID! :)

I made the images brighter, to help aid in identification.

Ok
I changed the dates to the date i caught these. Should the exposure compensation be higher or lower?

 
exposure compensation
I thought that would be obvious - higher for more light.

 
Oh
Ok, thanks!

I believe the date field should contain the collection date, instead of the Dec. 31 photo date. The photo date could go in the remarks.

your photos
are badly underexposed, burying any details in deep shadow. Look for "exposure compensation" or similar on your camera to compensate for the camera underexposing because of the white background.
