Tiny Bug - Agaveocoris

Tiny Bug - Agaveocoris
Kelsey Canyon, Galiuro Mountains, N of 3 Links Ranch, SE of Cascabel, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
November 19, 2011
Size: Tiny - apporx 1-2 mm
I'm guessing this is either Agave Bug (Caulotops barberi) or Yucca Plant Bug (Halticotoma valida), but the scutellum seems different; on a Desert Century Plant leaves (? if correct species of Agave), near Juniper tree, elev 4200 feet

Moved from Plant Bugs.

Thanks for your help
Thanks - to me it looks a little more similar to Caulotops distanti, but that is only by looking at the photo.

Caulotops sounds good... will show around
your spellchecker tool is acting out again: 'valid' )))
