snacking on a "hi-altitude chocolate milk fly"
Jefferson Notch area, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
May 5, 2007
Size: probably 2mm body
This young harvestman was among aged conks I collected beginning May 5th during my Forest Service-approved search for Py*tho str*ictus. The fly was one of several collected from a carnivore-savaged plastic bottle containing an small amount of rotten chocolate milk, which I picked up as trash in the krummholz forest zone of Mt. Washington July 6. This fly was already dead but fresh enough to interest the harvestman.

I notice some curious ball-tipped fringe or setae on the mouthparts that I think I'll try to zoom in on.

I think this is my 4,500th bugguide image.

Thanks for moving this one, Stephen.
Suborder is as much as I'd dare hope for :-)
