Rhyparochromidae - Neopamera bilobata

Rhyparochromidae - Neopamera bilobata
Gates, Gates County, North Carolina, USA
March 20, 2010
Size: 3mm
Eremocoris? Found on ledge of house foundation - did not tolerate camera.

ID confirmed by Merrill Sweet: Neopamera bilobata
can you believe this, T? we did it... (not that i encourage you to post the ever weirder angles :)

Moved from Myodochini.

even Neopamera bilobata deserve glamour shots! Just wait until the lingerie shots come out! Thanks for the ID - especially on such a tough angle, I will try to make it easier on you next time.

Moved from ID Request.

Rhyparochromidae: Myodochini; not Eremocoris
good photo, but the angle's way too challenging; suspect Neopamera bilobata, though
please try to get plain dorsal views -- otherwise most bugs may be impossible to ID with any degree of confidence

Tried ...
This was the knee-jerk, get a photo before it flies, photo. When I tried for the "plain dorsal view", it flew (I was not in position for a dorsal shot - I was tracking another insect when this one flew up, and I had to reposition to get the dorsal view - this was the best I could do from the position I was in). There will be more ...
Thanks for the ID - I will continue chasing these little jewels.

please do
love your work
