Plant Bug
Heterotoma meriopterus

plant bug

These little bugs have fat antennae with what looks like needles at the end.  They are omnivorous, dining on aphids and
also having snippets of buds and fruit.  I have only seen two in my garden so I'm assuming they're probably not big
eaters so I won't be sending in the praying mantis. This is a better picture than the first one I posted. © Carol Davis, 7-7-2008
