Since I don’t get along with my camera I appreciate the comment. I usually find some (not many) in this area every year late in the season.

Nice photographs, Jeff..

I first collected A. ocreata in the Aptos area under live oak…years ago. If you should collect and dry material of this species, I would be very interested in studying it. Recent research in China demonstrates that they have many more white destroying angel species than they thought. This is probably true also in North America.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
