  • Slime molds are gorgeous (you just never knew it) [video]
    Observing nature is really fascinating, and it's everywhere - even in your fridge! Should you find something you can't identify try which makes recording, sharing, discussing, identifying and correcting audio or still image media based observations easy and is of great utility to biologists tasked with understanding and environmentalists protecting our remnant biodiversity. Just be sure to... - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • Please tell me these are not what I think they are…
    Recluses are known to stay in a location long-term without dispersing much. If you search your garage and house, you should be able to easily find some more. You should get in touch with your county extension office and send them specimens, and also record your observations on iNaturalist or BugGuide. Source: about 1 year ago
  • What is the best possible use for Entomology as a hobby rather than a professional job?
    iNaturalist is a website run by various scientific/educational entities that is a database of observations by ordinary people (not just scientists at work). You upload photos and add geographic location and what taxon the organism belongs to, and you can also add notes and useful metadata. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Bought my first microscrope
    You can try online databases like this one, or, but I've had the most luck just posting the images on here and hoping they get recognized. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Lifted up a log and found this fella. Clover mite? SW MO, USA

  • Have you ever bought flowers for your boyfriend?
    See, I don't buy my husband flowers. I either 1) Grow some plants and make him look at them when they're flowering or 2) Go hunting flowers in the wilderness, take pictures, and we both hop on iNaturalist to ID them. Source: over 1 year ago

    Download the iNaturalist app, or use the site. You can search for Psilocybe or Panaeolus genus mushrooms near you. I think mushroomobserver is another resource. Source: over 1 year ago

    Can you please post this on iNaturalist ? Just to record the observation in your area (there's nothing wrong with having this species in your area so don't worry). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Any idea as to what this is? Apparently it’s Ceryerda cursitans but I’m not sure.

  • Help with ID - Dallas, TX
    Head over to iNaturalist and look at all the spiders in Dallas. It's good to learn what species you have in your area. You've got 4 different Widow species and obviously Brown Recluses up in Dallas. Source: over 1 year ago
