Hosting on my poor Hyalophora euryalus

Over the span of 2 days one cat died, followed by 2 more the following 24 hours. One remains unaffected for now and I am bleaching their mesh pop ups.

Symptoms include darkening of the skin and liquification.

It is believed to have hitched a ride on willow I've been feeding to them.

After work edit, an Io has succumbed. Same symptoms. Bleaching all containers and separately quarantining all 3 species of caterpillars.

Edit, 26th: The last Hyalophora has passed away.

Description

Parasitic worm from a huntsman spider


Body length a tad short of 600mm! Emerged from a sparassid. Found curled up into a Gordian tangle, suggesting a Horsehair Worm or Gordian Worm (due to their knottiness)belonging to the Nematomorpha, usually seen emerging from crickets and grasshoppers. It appears, however, that such worms that come from spiders are more likely mermithid Nematodes. All references I could find quote Poinar 1985. The brief text in ADS2014:(p.19)that deals with nematode parasites of spiders is also copied from that article.

Little seems to be knowm about life cycles or identification of long, tough helminths that live in large spiders. Poinar (1985) mentions mermithids up to 150mm and Nematomorphs that parasitise insects are said to be as long as a meter. By size and general appearance this worm resembles Nematomorphs I've seen emerging from Cockroaches.

I dipped the worm in hot water to kill it so I could satisfy my curiosity about its length. It is now preserved in cane spirits if anyone is interested?

The trip indeed was fruitful, despite the back-breaking journey, I managed to photograph some extraordinary moths, like this one.

I immediately ran towards it and tried to drag it back towards the water at least 5 times by its tail but had no luck getting it all the way back into the water. We ended up leaving after trying for about 5 minutes to get it back in the water since I was guiding at the time.

While Bald Eagles do nest in Texas along various rivers, I was surprised to find an adult perched on a utility pole just outside of Gonzales, Texas today. The Guadalupe River is nearby so perhaps this bird had had a nest there earlier in the season. When I stopped to take some shots, the eagle flew a few hundred yards farther away and landed on another pole at a poor light angle for photos. A Scissor-tailed Flycatcher started dive-bombing the eagle. The eagle took off followed by the Scissor-tailed FC until they were out of sight. I'm posting the eagle and the scissor-tailed separately, but will use this same text.
