Piglet Bug or Issid Bug - Asarcopus palmarum - Female
El Paso, El Paso County, Texas, USA
March 13, 2016
Size: 4 mm
Floating in pool next to a Phoenix dactylifera. The palm is approximately 5 years old and it seems to be developing fine. I have searched for this bug on the palm without success. All my finds have been of bugs floating in the pool.
