Brown Dun hatch/swarm time? 10 Replies »
Has anyone else watched a Brown Dun hatch or swarm? If so, what time of day did you see it, and how long did it last?Reply
I came upon a woodland swarm late this evening. I thought I saw mating occurring higher above the stream. This would mean that parthenogenesis is not necessarily happening in "my" stream. I watched for awhile, but got distracted (venomous snake). I hope to catch it (the hatch, not the snake) again tomorrow night and note the egg-laying behavior and possibly nab some male adults for science. There's a range of nymph ages, so I should be OK, weather permitting.
