Shore bug - Micracanthia humilis

Shore bug - Micracanthia humilis
Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA
June 29, 2005
Size: ~3 mm
These numerous tiny bugs are in the sandy areas of our yard. We have had a lot of rain this season with much dampness and standing puddles in our yard, so the environment could be right for this bug...And it sure looks a lot like this critter Micracanthia humilis on Cedar Creek's site.
