What Are These?

Recommended Posts

I agree with Graham, as a dragon fly nymph, but think that they bowth are. I think partialy digested, one the thorax and body, the other the head and partial thorax. It is hard to tell from a pic.

I think you guys hit it right on. Definately a dragon fly on the left and about 90% sure that's a dragon fly partial thorax/head on the right.

Hi:

 

Actually, they're both dragonfly nymphs. The one on the left appears to be Ophiogomphus sp. (spatulate 3rd antennal segment, and divergent windpads); the one on the right is an aeshnid, with its abdomen missing. The head and wingpads are also distinctive - perhaps it's Boyeria vinosa, or Aeshna umbrosa, but I'd need to see more details of its head and mouthparts.

 

Cheers, Ethan
