Black Thrips - Hoplothrips
Hudson, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
February 3, 2006
Size: 3 mm head to tip of tail
Found in a finned tree fungus.
One thing I found out about thrips, they can climb very well. Both this one and a red one I shot crawled right up the side of the plastic deli container and down the outside. I never did catch up with this black one.
