Notes

Weather was very hot and humid and had been in the high 80s for the week prior to observation.
This specimen was found in the bend of a stream that was rocky and muddy. Water was not visible until the rock covering the specimen was lifted.
The stream was so low that it dried up completely a few hundred feet downstream.
