Spring flowers and another alien

kontikia-ventrolineataNot a great photo, but this may be another alien species, Kontikia ventrolineata, so called because of the stripes running along the midline. Found under an old metal parasol base. There are better photos on this website.




In the woods at Shinners Bridge, lots of dogs mercury, snowdrops, and split open seed capsules of stinking iris.

Hidden in the leaf litter, a single white flower of sweet violet
