Last night's rain and this morning's warm and cloudy weather had brought the local Megapallifera mutabilis out. Within about an hour around noon today I found and weighed 10 of them. That's 10 more data points for our ongoing project to deduce the population cycle of this species by monitoring their sizes during a year.
Today's surprise find was this big daddy-o. It wasn't even fully stretched when I took this photo.
It weighed 5.75 grams; definitely one of the heaviest Megapallifera mutabilis I have so far weighed.
There may be updates.
