Unknown Bug
Attached please find several pictures of a bug that is very strange. It looks like an ant lion with carnage on its back. It has a very powerful bite with front jaws, but is only the size of an ant. It is camouflaged by pieces of other insects and debris that it sticks on its back. Found under an oak tree. Sorry about the pics, but they were taken with a digital camera looking through a magnifying glass. What is it?
Thanks,
Dave & Vickie
