Have you ever met some natural “intruders” at Lingnan University?  Apart from the Lingnan cats who enjoy sunbaths around us, there are many tiny living creatures which are often misperceived as typical mosquitoes.  Emily Kwong Siu-chi, a recent Lingnan graduate from the Department of Chinese who enrolled in the course “Natural History of Hong Kong” last semester, has paid much efforts in identifying insects on campus.  “We caught an adult Tessaratoma papillosa, whose identity as a pest on lychee trees was unveiled after hours of investigation,” said Emily with her amusement in exploring our nature.
