Fly or Hemipteran? - Saldoida slossonae
Coastal Plain- North Carolina, North Carolina, USA
April 27, 2015
Size: 3-4mm
Weird looking insect. Can't see any halteres but only has 2 wings. Long mouthpart. What is this? It was captured in a pitfall trap.

Moved from Saldoida.

got it! new genus for the guide -- thank you so much, Josh
great addition
please keep an eye out for them -- we need more pics of this awesome saldid!

Moved from True Bugs.

wow is all i can say
with these obscene antennae, must be immediately recognizable -- but i'm not even sure about family

Moved from ID Request.

Very cool! I'll be interested to see where this one lands.

Hmmm
I can't find an exact match, but these antennae look similar, head is different though... Definitely Hemiptera, but perhaps the shore bugs are closer.


Looks like Heteroptera
thought it might be a shore bug Saldidae, but couldn't find a match
