Default Stump the Shihan

OK Folks Shihan said he is a bug guy so here is my Challenge to him.

He will ID bugs as you post them. What I want is this.

1. pictures must be your own pictures
2. no blurry pics. "The Blob" is not a correct answer it was a movie.
3. please look up the bug yourself first.
4. Shihan should not use the internet. You should use your vastly superior brain and maybe a reference manual.... If reference is used please note it.

Bug #1 as seen on my front porch clinging to the brick.


Bug #2 Tried to attack and eat me while I was cooking dinner at 9 pm Saturday night. I looked and looked all over and could not figure out what this one was.

Glasshart...You got that pic you took of the bug at Lon's place? That is a good one.

When I saw the white moth, I thought "hey, we have those here, too." And Linda got a picture of one.

Don't be so hard on yourself, most of your threads are fantastic, even though this one sucks.

Where is shihan? He still hasn't proven himself as the bug man.

He must be out entymoligizing or whatever it is that bug experts do. I call it "squishing".

Bug #1 is the White Flannel Moth.

Bug #2 is a Longhorned beetle, tough to see the picture to tell exactly which one.

I have been at work. But will catch you up soon.

Picture is a little tough, but it appears at first glance to be a Yellow Sac Spider. A more focused picture would be helpful.

Keep in mind there are times that I need a Microscope to properly identify. Most times I can get it pretty close if not right.
A lot goes into proper identification.
