small bug with a mite - Amphiareus obscuriceps
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA

Size: about 4mm
Is this a Mirid?


Lyctocoris campestris (Fabricius 1794), i believe
Moved from Minute Pirate Bugs.

That looks like a good choice. my size estimate is probably off on the large side, it could be 3mm or less.

I'm thinking this might be a minute pirate bug instead, but I'm in no way positive.

Anthocoridae, sure
