tiny bug - Corimelaena

tiny bug - Corimelaena
Manteca, San joaquin County, California, USA
September 6, 2007
Size: 1/8 "
I am pretty sure this little fellow is a true bug because of the antennae segments . I have been observing closely every plant in my yard to find new bugs for 3 months ( new hobby ) now and this is the first time that I have seen this little bug . It has a distinctive red/ orange line on it's side . I first found it on a Sunflower leaf . I found it on a tansy flower today seemingly enjoying the pollen . I believe that it is full grown since all 4 that I have seen are the same size . This little guy is shy and trys to duck on the underside of the leaf or fly away . I would appreciate any help in his identification ... just when I thought that I had found all the bugs to be found in my yard ... a new one to me ! Thankyou , sincerely Beth

Sorry I can't pronounce the family name, let alone spell it:-) Nice images of a species not yet in the guide I don't think....
