I recently sent a few pics of insects I’ve found in Northern Indiana. I have been able to ID it with Peterson’s Field Guide, and then confirmed it with pics on BugGuide. They are stilt bugs (the Berytidae Family). Just thought I’d let you know so you don’t spend a lot of time searching for it.
Thanks so much for resending your photograph and identification. We apologize, but your first attempt slipped under our radar and we never saw the letter. We are very excited to have this image of mating Stilt Bugs because the family Berytidae was not represented on our site until your letter. According to BugGuide members of the family can be identified because: “Antennae have four segments, the fourth enlarged.”
