We will be out of the office from June 6 through June 15.  During that time we will not be responding to any email requests and we expect that submissions during that time will accumulate and many will never be read.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  In an effort to keep post new content during our absence, we have postdated some interesting recent submissions to post live during our absence.

Daniel Marlos

We’re back.  The best bug sighting were the hundreds of fireflies that appeared after a warm rain.  The amount of mail we received is staggering, so please forgive us if you do not hear back.

Thanks Elena,
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, visitors to What’s That Bug? are able to use our translation feature which works in over fifty languages.  The illustration looks just like me.
