Caught in the dead grass near the ponds at the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus. It was collected at approximately 1:15 on 1/23/23 using forceps. They were found hopping around in the grass and we used the forceps to pick them up and place them in the jar. It was partly cloudy and 59 degrees when we caught them.
