Camoflage Tree Insect?
June 11, 2009
Hello,
We live in Toronto, Ontario and found this guy in our washroom this evening near a window. The good urban naturalists we are, we gently captured him and went right to your site but still couldn’t see any similar insects. We know he’s not a spider and we do plan to release him into the wilderness of our yard but would love to know what he is.
Thank you!

Dear Ivey Family,
We are sorry for the delay, but we were away when your letter arrived, and the huge volume of emails we received in our absence just piled up.  If you go to our Assassin Bug page, you will be able to find numerous examples of Masked Hunters posted.  Masked Hunters in their immature stages are sticky and attract lint to themselves as camouflage.
