Near Stevens Creek, Modoc Area, McCormick County, South Carolina, USA July 7, 2005 Size: 7mm, head to abdomen
This was a smallish bug, found in a tree about a meter off the ground. At first I thought it was a beetle, but after reviewing the photos it looks like a true bug. I'm not sure what kind though. A negro bug? Or perhaps this is some hard-to-identify nymph?
