Yesterday I read Dr. Pat Vittum update on turf insects about the two common invasive craneflies that can damage turf. By around noon I was in Wellesley looking a Hemlock woolly adelgid in a very large and mature hedge that bordered a brook. Resting on the trunk of on hemlock next to the brook was a non turf grass damaging crane fly, the Tipula abdominalis, and I took a photo of it here. Thorax patterned with six black shapes over the gray.
