At first , I thought this was a blood-sucking Cone nose , but after Eric Eaton suggested that it was a Flat Bark Bug , I have to agree . I don't know if this photo will help , but you can see baby bugs on the under-side of the mushroom . I only wished that I would have used the flash ! Thanks again for all the work you Bugguide professionals do in analysis and discovery , sincerely Beth
