  • Karkur Talh (Jebel Uweinat), March 2010

    A single individual of a sand (or desert) cockroach of the Arenivaga genus was observed in southern Karkur Talh in the evening, first flying then alighting on the sand. Very soon after landing it was attacked by one of the large black deert ants (Cataglyphis fortis).
