Author's notes

Very small about 5mm long. 3rd photo shows the insect next to the tip of a pencil. The last photo the insect is on the pencil. The insect flew into the car on the dashboard as the door opened, was amazed at the detail in such a tiny insect. It stayed and posed for awhile then flew back out. Went through most of the insects on CNM but could not find it.

Have been doing a bit more searching to try and find out what this insect was and think it is a Sycamore lace bug (Corythucha ciliata), it is not listed on CNM. Hope this helps, Deb

have just put in a suggested species for this sighting think this is. It was put on in April - Sycamore lace bug (Corythucha ciliata) but the name is not in the CNM listing and have had no response about it yet. Thought it may be of interest as it is a pest.
