Rhyp. - Chilacis typhae

Rhyp. - Chilacis typhae
West Campus Park,Calgary, Alberta, Canada
June 11, 2009
Size: ~5 mm
I believe this was collected near the pond if I remembered correctly.

Update from Merrill Sweet
"Your bug is a good one, but expected as it European introduction that is spreading fast on cat tails. Chilacis typhae (Perris). It might be a new record for Canada, but it is probably common by now"
