In May of 2016, Aaron Pomerantz (of UC Berkeley) and I joined the Tropical Herping team for a visit to Yasuni National Park in Ecuador. During our night surveys, we ended up finding five of the silkhenge structures we've previously documented in Peru. Hanging out back at the field station, this happened:

We're incredibly excited to be able to share this video, and the DNA barcode in the description of the video. These things have been sighted from Brazil to Peru, French Guiana to Ecuador, so we're convinced they are much more common than previously acknowledged, it's just a matter of time until someone figures out exactly who is making it, and why.

Any guesses?
