Burrower Bug nymph - Sehirus cinctus

Burrower Bug nymph - Sehirus cinctus
Lancaster, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
June 13, 2005
Size: 3mm

Moved from Burrowing Bugs. for good accordance, and because other Cydnid nyphs are unlikely to find (Sehirus does not have burrowing habits).

Burrower bug nymph
I think it's a burrower bug nymph. Terribly cute!

See pic.

Thanks Ildar
for finding the correct ID of this nymph.

That's what it looks like to
That's what it looks like to me. Did you by any chance find this in large aggregations? I found quite large groups of this type of bug nymph in northern Alberta.

All by itself
This was only one of two I saw in the area. A few days ago, I did see a group of about 10 together in a tree branch.
