I thought I had everyone stumped in Super Crop Challenge #5, but Dave took advantage of the extended answer period and cracked the code for a solo win and the lead in the current session. For this edition of Super Crop Challenge, I offer the following impossibly cryptic crop of a photo I took this past winter. The organism is from Brazil, but that’s no excuse for punting since there are very similar North American counterparts. Points for order, family, genus and a possible species ID are all up for grabs, as are the structures and specific life stage to which they belong.
Standard challenge rules apply, including moderated comments (to give everyone a chance to take part) and possible bonus points for being the first to guess correctly (in the off chance multiple people offer the same correct answers) or for making me chuckle. Reminder: nobody walks away with no points, so it pays to try even if you haven’t a clue!
