Description

The two smaller specimens were found hibernating in window frames and the larger specimen in a hollowed out kamahi. I noticed this species for the first time this past Summer, and they have grown in number until groups of adults began hibernating for the Winter in dry places. It is of note that most of the hibernating individuals have already left due to this mild Winter.
