Timemas mate-guarding - Timema chumash - Male Female
Icehouse Canyon, Mount Baldy Village, San Bernardino County, California, USA
June 7, 2009
This species is quite common on the Canyon live oaks Quercus chrysolepis here in the spring and early summer.

Moved from Timema.

New species for the Guide
Congratulations, Jonathon! Along with your companion post of the male below:

...these are the first posts of T. chumash on the guide.

The oak host, San Gabriel Mnts locale, and most unequivocally...the shape and size of the "teeth" on the male cerci, together with the twist in the intra-dextral process (barely discernible here)...all indicate clearly that this is species chumash. Nice find and shots.
