Identification of Common Species of Kalanchoe subg. Bryophyllum

This is a basic guide for the identification of some of the most common species of Kalanchoe subgenus Bryophyllum, which are invasive in the tropics and subtropics. Some of the species are easily confused, especially when leaves are not present. I've seen many observations go unidentified because the photo showed only flowers and not leaves, so I did some research and found key differences between the species that are helpful for identification. I will try to make this as simple as possi...

User's uneccesarily identifying my mushrooms

I get really annoyed when I post a Mushroom picture for Identification and then someone Identifies it as "Fungi" or "Mushroom". Like, I DONT NEED THAT.
ITS OBVIOUSLY A MUSHROOM/FUNGI! SO all my Pics are indentied with broad general labels like "Fungi" or "Mushrooms".
SO irritiating!

V1.2 A Key to the Eleodes Species of the United States and Canada

Even better version with changes for the identification of E. discincta and E. adumbrata. Some sentences made more clear and understandable. It is of note that E. nevadensis will soon be synonymized with E. delicata, the taxon will be named Metablapylis nevadensis. Since Johnston 2015 does not recognize E. nevadensis in favor of E. delicata, I would recommend that any of your E. delicata/E. nevadensis observations be identified as E. delicata. Also the range of E. wheeleri is not restric...

Phantom Midge

The Phantom Midge (Family: Chaoboridae) are commonly found in ponds and still waters. This example is a juvenile or larva which is nearly transparent with a partially tallow cast. It has two opaque features or airbags (one in the thorax, one in the abdomen in the second last segment). The adult forms are differentiated by wing venation and delicate flies that closely resemble Chironomidae. This larva was found in a bag of purchased Daphnia and care therefore needs to be taken to distingu...
