Nice. John, I know I've asked this before (sorry) -- to catch these live specimens, you use a dry pitfall trap and then check it frequently?

Thanks, Kevin. Yes, I use dry traps so that I can release specimens I don't need (immatures, already-haves, etc), and also because I want to take habitus photos before commiting anything to alcohol. I'm always thinking, "this will be good for BugGuide," whenever I find something new or interesting. I set up a couple of new traps yesterday in an area where I've been seeing a lot of Castianeira sp. running around. Hope something is in them when I go out later today. :)
