Araba Bioscan 12-19 March 2021

Data for the period 12-19 March 2021

See the Araba Bioscan Project page for background information on the project and methods.


A very striking coniopterygid this week, apparently a male in the genus Neosemidalis (perhaps N. nervalis).

Specimens from two weeks in November 2020 have now been sequenced, apparently without noticeable problems from the use of isopropyl. Once the sequences have been processed (aligned with BINs and made public), I’ll update the pages for the corresponding weeks.
