LSAM's visit the Painted Pony Resort

About a dozen members from the Louisiana State Arthropod Museum (LSAM) spent 10 days at PPR collecting and identifying insects. They were out in the Chiricahuas during the day setting traps and collecting around the sky islands. In the evenings after dinner the light traps were set up and more collecting took place long into the night since different species would arrive at the lights at different times. The light traps brought in thousands of insects and the goal of 10,000 beetles was easily met. Here are links to some of their photos.
