Made a trip down to that nature preserve again where I found my Parcoblatta pennsylvanica and Meracantha contracta. I came back once again with some awesome finds!
I found two large Meracantha contracta larvae, one large Neopyrochroa flabellata larva, about six Trachelipus rathkii(mostly orange individuals), and a large Dolomedes tenebrosus!
Was really excited to find the two M.contracta larvae, hopefully I've got an individual of each sex out of the three larvae I have!
Here are some photos!

Next, here's some pics of the interesting-looking N.flabellata larva!

Lastly, here's some pics of the large and beautiful D.tenebrosus!
I'm also really happy to have collected the orange T.rathkii, I added them to the community that I'm trying to isolate the orange trait in. As an extra bonus, I was able to collect a nice supply of rotten wood, which is always nice to have plenty of!
Have a good night everybody, and I'll see you all next time!
