Anthocorid adult

Anthocorid adult
Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon, USA
August 25, 2017
Size: <3 mm
This is another predator I spotted in the garden while trying to photograph the spider mite destroyers (no such luck, they move fast!). This one wasn't any more amendable to being photographed than its predatory compatriots, so I only got a couple of blurry photos; but, since Oregon is so underrepresented on BugGuide, it seemed worth uploading them. At most this one was 3 mm long, because it was only very slightly bigger than the speedy Stethorus sp. running around. It looks kind of like an Orius sp. (maybe tristicolor?).
