Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, USA
July 2, 2010
Size: 2-3mm
From a sweep net sample in an urban garden within Cleveland. I snapped this photo quickly as I was leaving the lab, haven't had a chance to look at a key while I had the specimen in front of me so I have been poking around with just this image and I'm a bit confused. It looks like an amalgamation of parts from various groups and I imagine once you know what it is it's not easily forgotten.

Wow
That was fast, thanks. I knew it would be recognized just not that fast, another example of why this site is so great. Looking up natural history now.
