One ugly critter

  1. Sometimes we may not want to see the world close-up. The critter below, attached to the door jamb of the outhouse at my older sister's cabin, sent my kid sister screaming from the john.

    original.

    Anybody know what it is?

  8. Harry, that's a Stone Fly larva (Order Plecoptera). Usually, they inhabit fast running, cool waters, clutched to stones or dead wood. Only before reaching the adult stage they leave the water.

    IMO - not ugly at all.

    Cheers
     
  9. Sounds like you have it right. The outhouse sits on top of a stony cliff on the bank of a fast-moving creek (riffle spot). The bugs were on the cast-concrete frame of the outhouse. All consistent with your description. Thanks so much, other Harry!
