M. neotredecim in Lake St. Charles, MO

Spent about 1/2 hour in Lake St. Louis today. Thousands of M. tredecassinis and cast-off skins all over the place. Once I got away from the din of M. tredecassinis, I Heard 3 M. neotredecims calling. Found one dead M. neotredecim, of which I am including a photo.

Hi Bill,

That is amazing how morphologically different M. neotredecim are compared to their eastern counterparts M. tredecim. It's my understanding that they also sound slightly different from M. tredecim as well. Thanks for sharing.
