Thanks Stephen and Boris
I found this under a log, and it was a fast runner.

yes, Nabid

Hi Tom,
the general shape of this bug immediately reminded me of Nabicula, though the head looks sort of different. I'm pretty sure that it's a Nabid, though. Let's see what others have to say concerning the head.

A Pagasa, perhaps?

right on! this is Pagasa

It looks good
but I don't know enough about these bugs to make a decision. Thanks for the help Stephen.
