Water scorpions in the genus Ranatra (10 spp. Information on the invertebrates of this system is sparse. Warning eyespots resembling the eyes of an owl or mammal are displayed as a threat by the leaf-mimicking silk moth, Automeris cecrops, when disturbed. Although these lists probably only include a fraction of the taxa in this region, they give some idea of the diversity of insect communities in these rivers. The queen brood is collected from February to April, and erroneously called “ant eggs” indicating that they are not aware that the larvae and pupae develop into future queens (Van Itterbeeck et al., 2014). Among mollusks there are applesnail (Mexican), minute hydrobe, Aroapyrgus clenchi, A. pasionensis, Cochliopina infundibulum, Pachychilus chrysalis, and P. pilsbryi (A. Contreras-Ramos, personal communication). The toxic chemical in holly is theobromine, a stimulant that naturally occurs in chocolate, though in lower concentrations. We facilitate and provide opportunity for all citizens to use, enjoy, and learn about these resources. The slender, needlelike appendage at the tip of the abdomen is not a stinger; instead, it is a pair of half-tubes that, when held together, become a sort of snorkel. Plastrons are thought to behave as gas exchange structures in a manner similar to air bubbles. When concealment and escape fail, most insects resist and fight back with varying success by biting with mandibles, kicking and struggling, stinging, and releasing allomones. FIGURE 101. Amphibians and reptiles associated with riparian habitats of the Usumacinta–Grijalva system include river crocodile, swamp crocodile, common snapping turtle, tortugas blanca, and tortugas casquito. There are four species belonging to the genus, and all of them are extremely poisonous. For some plants, all parts of the plant are poisonous. Nonnative species from four families have been introduced primarily for aquaculture: Cyprinidae (common carp and grass carp), Salmonidae (rainbow trout), Centrarchidae (largemouth bass), and Cichlidae (blue tilapia, redbelly tilapia, Nile tilapia, Mozambique tilapia, and jaguar guapote) (Rodiles-Hernández 2004). Bodily damage is a serious threat and risk to an organism's ability to survive, feed, and reproduce. Amaryllis: (Hippeastrum spp) All parts are toxic to cats and dogs, but especially the bulbs. Length (not including appendages, including “tail”): to 4 inches; usually about 1½ inches (Ranatra spp. (Hibernation differs from the diapause of other species in that full development has already occurred in the former state.) Plant Identification. Pets may be likely to try to eat the berries over winter. Figure 11.2. 16.110.112) …………………………………………………………………………… Hydrometridae, Head not grooved ventrally; three tarsomeres; >2.5 mm long …………………………… 14, Head grooved ventrally to receive rostrum; two tarsomeres; <2.5 mm long ………… Hebridae, Eye medial margins converge anteriorly (Fig. 16.110.109, 112–114) ………………………………………………………………………………… 9, Rostrum cylindrical or conical, distinctly of 3 or 4 articles (Fig. Note: Please note that insects do not adhere to man-drawn borders on a map and as such they may be found beyond their listed 'reach' showcased on our website. 16.110.101); each front tarsus of one article, fringed with setae (Fig. Ryan McVay, Getty Images A child can eat 1-2 holly berries ( Ilex sp. ) Gills may be on the abdominal tip (Diptera, Odonata: Zygoptera), laterally along the abdomen (Ephemeroptera, Trichoptera), or within the rectum (Diptera, Odonata: Anisoptera). Miller (1986) mentions a total of 115 fish species known from the Grijalva–Usumacinta system in Mexico (Minckley et al. They adapted the environment in Australia, and it takes approximately six hours for the Death Adder poison to kill a person. What initially seem to be antennae stretching forward from the body are actually their grasping, mantislike (“raptorial”) forelegs, used for seizing small aquatic prey. Figure 6. 16.1.92, 94 and 98) …………………………2, 1′ Antennae longer than head, inserted in front of eyes and visible from above (Figs. Underwing moth (Noctuidae) with cryptic leaf-mimicking front wings (note that the mimicry even includes “mold” spots) that normally cover the bright hind wings, which are exposed to startle predators. 16.1.93) …………………………Corixidae, 3(2) Apical abdominal respiratory appendages absent, or if present, short and flat (Fig. When oxygen is needed by surface-dwelling species, they need only open their spiracles covering the entrance to the tracheae. It is difficult to indicate how important insects are as food in tropical regions, because the food source is seasonal. Each category is further organized alphabetically by family and by species within each family. Immature stages show wing “buds.” Apparently most water scorpions can live for at least a few years. The old saying “Leaves of three, Let it be!” is a helpful reminder for identifying poison ivy and oak, but not poison sumac which usually has clusters of 7-13 leaves. Giant waterbug, Lethocerus indicus (Hemiptera: Belostomatidae), Klong Toey Market, Bangkok, Thailand. These creatures are vital links in the aquatic food chain, and their presence and numbers tell us a lot about water quality. Individuals in schools of fish, flocks of birds, and herds of running African ungulates present difficult targets for predators. We specialize in resolving pests problems in the least toxic and most environmentally friendly way wherever possible. Similarly, endoparasitic insects such as chalcid (Hymenoptera) larvae and tachinid (Diptera) larvae connect to the air using posterior spiracles inserted through the host's integument or tracheal system. Figure 11.1. In addition to startle, this behavioral display provides the predator with a search image for red color, which can cause the predator to overlook the dull grasshopper. The sticklike appearance and slow-motion behavior of water scorpions in genus Ranatra is a camouflage that works in two ways. 94); length <3 mm ....................................................................................................................................Pleidae, Elongate (Fig. 101); femurs without black spines; riparian; western United States........................Macroveliidae, Justin O. Schmidt, in Encyclopedia of Insects (Second Edition), 2009. The bad news is that the Brazilian wandering spider secretes a potent neurotoxin that slowly paralyzes and strangulates its victims even in microscopic doses. At least 32 Amerindian groups in the Amazon base use terrestrial invertebrates as food (Paoletti et al., 2000a,b). Their bodies resemble sticks and leaves, allowing them to remain motionless as sit-and-wait predators along pond or stream margins, waiting for prey to come within reach of their mantid-like forelegs. 16.110.105); eyes protrude from head margin ………………………………… Belostomatidae, Length <16 mm; apical respiratory appendages absent; eyes not protruding (Fig. While some eat and cook with the pits of peaches, cherries, apricots, and plums, others consider them inedible and toxic. Needle Bugs; Water Stick Insects; Waterscorpions. 16.1.96) …………………………4, 3′ Abdominal apex with a long, slender, tubular respiratory appendage (Fig. (in press). Edwin Way Teale, in “Autumn Across America,” wrote of finding a water scorpion (R. fusca) fluttering about in the desert-like Badlands of South Dakota. Then, the tubelike mouthparts (a hallmark of all the true bugs) are used like a straw to suck the nutritious juices out of the prey. Death-feigning (playing dead) is common for Nepa. Riparian trees and brush of wetland forests include Andira galeottiana, Pachira acuatica, Bravaisia integerrima, Bravaisia tubiflora, bloodwoodtree, gregorywood, Paquira aquatica, willow, and mimosa. 16.110.101, 110.103, 107) ……………………… suborder Nepomorpha ……………………………… 2, Antennae longer than head, inserted in front of eyes and visible from above (Figs. Some Coleoptera and Heteroptera use their hairs or wings to carry air bubbles adjacent to their spiracles when they dive. Jabbed predators might mistake pseudostings for actual stings of female wasps and release the male. Several plants, such as deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna) and castor beans (Ricinus communis), are poisonous and thus should not be consumed. Water scorpions prefer still or slow waters with detritus and muddy bottoms, as in ponds, lakes, and slow sections of streams. [Copyright JT Polhemus & DA Polhemus]. 16.1.98); length <3 mm…………………………Pleidae, 8′ Body elongate (Fig. As oxygen is absorbed across a gill, oxygen level in the boundary layer of water over the gill can become low, slowing diffusive influx of oxygen. Some aquatic insects that rarely visit the surface obtain oxygen from the water by having specialized structures called plastrons which hold a thin film of air on the outside of their body. 2005), but a recent compilation for the entire state of Chiapas documents the presence of 111 species. The danger can range from mild irritation to severe illness or death. The venomous stings of wasps, ants, and bees are legendary for their abilities to cause pain and deter predation. For virtually any sensory system and behavior used by predators to detect prey, prey insects have evolved counterstrategies or defensive ploys. This rostrum projects down, below, and behind the head. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Odonates included Gomphidae (Archaeogomphus, Phyllocycla, Progomphus), Libellulidae (Libellula, Miathyrria marcella, Pachydiplax, Tauriphila), Protoneuridae (Protoneura, Neoneura), Calopterygidae (Hetaerina), and Coenagrionidae (Argia, Argiallagma [= Nehalennia], Heteragrion, Zonagrion). Caudal lamellae, which function as tracheal gills. Aposematic insects such as Dasymutilla occidentalis tend to rest in concealed places during periods of inactivity and run and hide under leaves or among vegetation when an approaching potential predator is sensed. It’s true that centipedes can bite people. When given a choice between a meal with accompanying pain (plus perceived bodily damage) and the loss of a meal, predators often opt for the latter. Protection can be achieved by living near or associating with a defended or noxious species. Many poisonous plants are so common and seemingly innocuous you do not suspect their toxic qualities. ); to about ¾ inch (Nepa sp.). Aquatic and endoparasitic insects generally retain an internal, air-filled tracheal system. Many flies and harmless bees and wasps buzz loudly when grabbed. Obviously, if something so unusual, so large, and so obvious can remain unknown to science for so long in this remote basin, many more discoveries can be anticipated. Water scorpions prey upon aquatic insects and other invertebrates, tadpoles, and very small fish. 95); length >5 mm ...................................................................................................................................Notonectidae, Profemurs broad, raptorial; antennae concealed from above.........................................................................................Gelastocoridae, Profemurs slender, similar to other legs; antennae visible from above..................................................................................Ochteridae, Membrane of hemelytra with 4 or 5 equal-sized cells (Fig. Water measurers (family Hydrometridae) and water striders (family Gerridae), both skinny and sticklike, both “walk on water,” using the surface tension to keep from sinking; water scorpions rarely go above the water. Frightening butterfly chrysalis (Nymphalidae: Dynastor sp.) Though the plant looks very beautiful, every part of it is laced with poison and is known to poison gardeners and backpackers who mistake its white carrot-like root for horseradish or some other herb. FIGURE 98. The specialized front limbs — or maxillipeds — of the centipede contain venom glands that help them hunt. Surprise combined with rapid escape flight is often a sufficient defense. The species in our area are not known to be harmful. 5). As a protective mechanism to deter animals, plants have evolved several mechanisms to keep animals from eating the plant. The immature stages look a lot like small versions of the adults (they do not pupate). 16.110.108); length >5 mm ………………………………… Notonectidae, Profemora broad, raptorial; antennae concealed from above ……………………… Gelastocoridae, Profemora slender, similar to other legs; antennae visible from above ……………… Ochteridae, Membrane of hemelytra without veins or with dissimilar sized cells; metacoxae small, conical; semiaquatic or riparian …………………………… suborder Gerromorpha ………………………… 10, Membrane of hemelytra with 4 or 5 equal-sized cells (Fig. FIGURE 100.

Pupae of the weaver ant, Oecophylla smaragdina (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) on a heap of ice, Klong Toey Market, Bangkok, Thailand. 16.110.102) ……………………………… Corixidae, Apical respiratory appendages absent, or if present, short and flat (Fig. Holly: (Ilex spp) All parts of the plant are toxic, and eating the sharp, spiky leaves can also cause damage to the throat, stomach or guts. For example, in many aquatic dipteran larvae such as mosquitoes, the posterior spiracles are surrounded by water-repellent hairs and are kept in the air while the animals feed in a head-down position. Examples of startle are dull cryptic moths, which, when detected by a bird or monkey, flash their hidden hind wings, revealing bright colors (Fig. First, it enhances the ambush hunting strategy, helping the insect surprise its prey. Water scorpions remain still, looking like a random bit of plant material. This key is modified from Andersen (1996), DeWalt & Resh (2016), and Jansson (1996). 100); femurs with 1 or more dorsal black spines distally ........................Mesoveliidae, Inner margins of eyes rounded (Fig. Chironomidae were the most widely distributed dipterans, but they were not identified beyond family by Bueno-Soria et al. Many aquatic and endoparasitic species have anatomical features that allow them to feed underwater (or within the host) while maintaining contact with air. Aquatic bugs can be identified by their highly modified mouthparts which are shaped into a tube-like rostrum used to suck liquified prey tissue into the bug’s body. Figure 5. Find local MDC conservation agents, consultants, education specialists, and regional offices. D. Christopher Rogers, ... W. Wayne Price, in Thorp and Covich's Freshwater Invertebrates (Fourth Edition), 2016, Antennae shorter than head, inserted beneath eyes and (except Ochteridae) not visible from above (Figs. 7) has only four. 1 Antennae shorter than head, inserted beneath eyes and (except Ochteridae) not visible from above (Figs. According to Abell et al. Some insects species in Lao PDR are available throughout the year, and these are often aquatic ones, such as the giant water bug, Lethocerus indicus (Hemiptera: Belostomatidae), (Figs. 90); front tarsi not scooplike.................................................3, Apex of abdomen with a long, slender, tubular respiratory appendage (Fig. Print. Water scorpion, any of the approximately 150 species of aquatic invertebrates of the family Nepidae (order Hemiptera).The water scorpion resembles a land scorpion in certain ways: it has scythelike front legs adapted for seizing prey and a long, thin, whiplike structure at its posterior end. When given a choice between a meal with accompanying pain (plus perceived bodily damage) and the loss of a meal, predators often opt for the latter. These same families provide most of the large number of endemic species (60 to 70). In some species, one or more pairs of legs have paired terminal claws. Honey bees and some species of ants are known to nest in portions of termite mounds. In these insects, a potential predator need sample only one or a few individuals to learn the unsuitability of the whole. Spiny caterpillars and an assortment of biting bugs and beetles, including assassin bugs (Reduviidae), giant water bugs (Belostomatidae), water scorpions (, (Young D. Cage photograph, Peru; used with permission. There are 14 genera in the family, in two subfamilies, Nepinae and Ranatrinae. Beautiful flowers, pleasant fragrances and lush leaves are the factors that attract humans to plants, but some of these plants can be life-threatening for people. II. Adder found in New Guinea as well, and it can strike fastest among all venomous snakes in Australia records. Some male wasps possess either sharp genitalia or separate “pseudostings” that are jabbed into grasping predators. Aquatic bugs can be identified by their highly modified mouthparts which are shaped into a tube-like rostrum used to suck liquified prey tissue into the bug’s body. Poisonous plants are plants that produce toxins that deter herbivores from consuming them. Index of all insects found in Illinois. Use of confusion of predators via mass motion is little studied in insects but likely is an important defensive behavior in some situations. A group of many coordinated individuals can more readily detect predators than solitary individuals, can then recruit others via alarm pheromones or vibrational signals to the common defense, and can launch effective attacks en masse. Not all pine varieties are edible, however; the ponderosa pine and several others varieties of pine trees can cause illness and death in cattle and other animals.One evergreen conifer, the yew, contains a toxic substance that is potentially fatal if ingested by humans. If you decide to bring it indoors, however, bear in mind that the plant is considered among the more poisonous. These sharp spines not only can painfully pierce skin but also can anchor strong kicks to free the slippery insect from grasp. Many centipedes are venomous, though not all are. At night when they are not cryptic or concealed from spiders, beetles, ants, and predators that search for prey mechanically and by olfaction and vibration, some conceal themselves by terminating feeding and hanging below the vegetation on long silken threads. 03. of 11. 16.110.107); length <3 mm ………………………………… Pleidae, Body elongate (Fig. Eggs can be ovoid (Notonectidae) or elongate (Mesoveliidae and Macroveliidae), with threadlike respiratory horns (, James H.

Eggs can be ovoid (Notonectidae) or elongate (Mesoveliidae and Macroveliidae), with threadlike respiratory horns (Nepidae), or they can be attached to a stalk (Hydrometridae). Some part of the ornamental plants or flowers in your yard may contain deadly poison. Less obvious than daytime concealment against visual predators, but an equally frequent and effective defense, is use of time for concealment. Figure 5. Like other predatory true bugs (such as assassin bugs, giant water bugs, and backswimmers), water scorpions can potentially bite a person and deliver a painful bit of digestive salivary fluids (venom) in the process. In addition, the overlapping fore wings of adults are hardened at the basal half and membranous closer to the tips. For similar reasons, rectal gills are ventilated by alternate contractions and relaxations of the rectum, which drive water in and out of the anus. 16.1.96); eyes protrude from head margin; terminal instars and adults often >18 mm body length…………………………Belostomatidae, 7(6) Habitus dorsoventrally flattened, elliptical (Fig. Hissing cockroaches (Gromphadorina portentosa) threaten by hissing, which resembles the defensive hiss of a snake. Taxa reported here are all from the Grijalva system: the Río Carrizal, Río Samaria, and Río Mezcalapa–Grijalva. An eyeless Nepa is the top predator in a closed Romanian cave system. ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Phone Number: (888) 426-4435 .
