Re: help identify lily varmint

Nope, but thanks for looking.  I wanted to post some photos earlier in the
week but my scanner's been on the fritz.  It finally decided to work this
morning so I put some pics up on my Yahoo Briefcase.   They are not
well-focused, but will give you some idea of what he looks like.  He has a
sort of humpbacked bumpy blue-green shell on his back, looks sort of like an
army helmet.  When squished he was bright green.  I've sent a yahoo message
to the list on where to view the photos; should come through soon.
