This yellow cranefly (kiirohoso-gaganbo) was resting on a leaf in a neighbour’s garden.
Nephrotoma virgata = kiirohoso-gaganbo
Fantastic photos! I was out today and found some great long-horn beetles and a reduviid in the process of sucking its victim dry. I have a couple of things i was wondering if you could identify. Mind if I send you a couple of photos to look at?
Sure, I’ll try to identify them, but can’t promise success. Those assassin bugs are pretty awesome, aren’t they. A few weeks ago I found a group of about twenty all huddled together on a tree trunk. Weird.

All the best,
I am wondering if you can help me find an image of Carposina sasakii. I am working for the government in British Columbia, Canada and trying to put together a field guide on how to identify invasive alien species: insects and disease. One of them is a Peach fruit moth. I cannot find an image, but know the moth is from Japan. Could you help me?

I don’t have a picture of this moth myself, but I found one on jpmoth.org. Here: http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/59_Carposinidae/58010901_Carposina_sasakii/Carposina_sasakii_950213250_1.jpg
I hope that this helps.
