Ladybug
10-10-15 © Sergio Cusano
Coleopteran of the family Coccinellidae, subfamily Coccinellinae. Commonly known as ladybus, lady beetles. These beetles are one of the few insects (with the exception of butterflies) we look at tenderly and dare to touch. Coccinelids, with the exception of a few species, are friendly to man. Not because they do not bite but because they are a biological pest controls. They predate on aphids, psyllids, etc reducing drastically the damage these insects cause on plant crops. This ladybug serves this purpose. It is native and has shown to be effective to control aphids which attack corn, soy and sorghum crops. That is why it has been studied to know in detail its potential benefits for this purpose.

Bat: The Phyllostomyd turned out to be a Molossid

At first this bat was thought to be a phyllostomid. And so was presented. Two characteristics supported the opinion: the nose-leaf (not clear in the photo) and the lack of loose tail extending beyond the uropatagium (membrane which connects the hind legs and totally or partially include the tail). Examined by other specialists the nose-leaf (a lance-shaped skin projection) was not such and the loose tail is not since they may fold it and this gives the impression that there is no loose tail.

Olga Vaccaro sent the photos to the Programa de Conservación de Murciélagos de Argentina (organziation for bat conservation) and Rubén Barquez and César Bracamonte gave their own opinion on the subjetc. To them this is an
Eumops possilby
bonariensis which belongs to the family Molossidae.

According to Rubén Barquez he cannot think of another species or genus in this area with this aspect. What seems strange to him is that it is flying during the day unless this is an effect of the photo. César Bracamonte agrees in that this is an
Eumops for the big ears nad the robust body and adds that if it was flying during the day he may have certainly been driven away from its shelter, something very common...
Regarding the tail Rubén comments that "when manouvering the tail may fold back and is not visible in a photo." For César "it is folded that is way it is not seen.
