Also, a quick trip to Canoe River Wilderness Area in Foxboro (first time there).  Non-invert photos first.

And now the invertebrates.

A Halictid bee.  Best guess Augochlora pura, but tough to tell from this poor image.

_DSC9210c

Acmaeodera tubulus in Buprestidae?

_DSC9222c

A huge mass of these caterpillars.  Hemileuca lucina, New England buck moth.

_DSC9267g

Sepsidae?

_DSC9284g

Rhagonycha in Cantharidae, I think.

Another sepsid?

A sawfly, maybe Tenthredinidae.

Ugh.  No idea.  Chrysomelid?  Phyllophaga in Scarabaeidae?

_DSC9359

Histeridae?  Best fit I could see is Aeletes politus.  If that’s correct, it earns me the coveted “First sighting in New England other than Tom Murray” award.  Of course, Tom Murray has recorded *five* sightings already, before anyone else recorded even one.

Rhagonycha again, I think.

Ahhh…. Scorpionfly, Panorpidae.  Panorpa.  Going by https://cjai.biologicalsurvey.ca/cmw01/panwing.html, maybe P. nebulosa?
