Stilt Bug
Genus Jalysus

Jalysus stilt bug
This tiny, skinny thing, that looked like a sliver on stilts, was sitting on the
 dirty trunk of my white car in Taylorsville,
Salt Lake County, Utah.  I just
had to run and get my camera to capture its little essence. © Carol Davis 10-24-2015

stilt bug in Taylorsville, Utah
It was very patient as I took its picture. I had never seen one of these on such a tiny
scale. Jalysus Stilt Bugs dine on moth eggs (says Bugguide).  Bugguide identified it
to the genus level for me on Dec. 26, 2016.  © Carol Davis 10-24-2
