Description

These were considerably rarer in a grassland swarming with Brachystola magna and other grasshoppers; only two were found. Had beautiful yellow wings when in flight and were intensely evasive; these photos were very difficult to get.

Thanks,

Description

Surprisingly difficult to find. Unlike K. williamsi and K. bogerti which are often found on exposed surfaces, K. oxy seems to be more similar to its closer relative K. savaryi in that it requires thick canopy cover. Annoyingly, all but one individual seen was deep inside a rock crevice or hole, making most of the 10 or so we saw impossible to capture.

Observed feeding on a European Earwig (Forficula auricularia). This specimen is a juvenile of the Phidippus genus, although I'm not sure which it might be, but it's likely P. adumbratus going off appearance alone.
