Double Quotes in the Titles
The double quotes are blocking the title text from the thumbnail previews. If you put your computer's mouse pointer over the image above, then you will see this. I suggest that you use single quotes, if you need to.
The double quotes will block everything to the right of them from all views, including the genus, species and gender, in all parts of the guide, including the browser and info pages. Single quotes will not do this.
Please select "edit" and replace them. Let me know if you don't understand this, OK.

MJ fixed it for you this time, lol.

This series
is fantastic.
Thank you.

Thanks, MJ
I couldn't believe the nymph and those surrounding filaments.

I really enjoy your many life cycle series.

Thank you.
Wouldn't it be great if more folks tried rearing?
(my success rate is horrid)
Oh the things we'd learn (even when the full life cycle is not achieved).

This posting of yours is on my wish list!

My life cycle posts (almost all are partial)

I haven't run across any more
I haven't run across any more like this, but I don't go to that place very often. It was also really small, even for a whitefly.

Yes, it would be great if more folks tried rearing. Usually I start with a late instar and end with the adult, as opposed to trying for a full life cycle, which would require a lot more time. Partial life cycles allow for pretty quick turnover of my scarce rearing space, so I'm able to rear more specimens/species :)
