Hellgramite
Hello again, Bugman!
I found this beauty today. My first hellgramite, and about three inches long. It was in a pupal chamber in sandy soil, under an overturned card table near the Missouri River. It copped an attitude pretty fast when I tipped the table up (I was hoping for a snake!). Anyway, I noticed you didn’t have any hellgramite photos on the page. I’m sorry the lighting is so bad. I decided to put it in a bowl of water for one shot, to get some of the sand off. I think I’ll let him go tomorrow. Thank you,
Emily

Hi Emily,
Long, long ago when we set up our website, we created separate pages for the larval Hellgrammites and the adult Dobsonflies. You can find other Hellgrammite images on their own page.
