Climacia californica

Climacia californica
Seattle, King County, Washington, USA
July 18, 2013
Found perched on my leg on the dock at Seattle's Center for Wooden Boats, adjacent to South Lake Union Park.

Appears to be the only species of the Sisyridae found in Washington state, so am jumping to conclusions with this ID. Photo taken with a camera phone and contrast-adjusted.

yess! thought so.
thanks, Tanyusha & Dr Oswald, for this most welcome addition to the Guide

Moved from Climacia.
