I’ve been asked by a reporter with a tight deadline to provide high quality images on an Aphodius larva and of an Aphodius pupa.  These are to be used in an upcoming article in The Western Producer (, a weekly newspaper for farmers in Canada.  The topic of the article is white grubs in crops of possible pest status; e.g., Aphodius distinctus.


If you have images of larva and pupa for other species (e.g., Ataenius), these also would likely do.


Although the source would be credited, there would be no financial reimbursement.


Can someone help me with this?
