Submitted by: jehartg
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found on a window of the Visitor Center at Bluebonnet Swamp. Note the large projections with little "flags" on the tips. On internet pics, these do not seem to be on all specimens. Maybe only male or only female? Hope to learn the purpose.
