I’d like to understand more about this fragile little guy
Tell me everything you know!
While we are amused that you want us to tell you everything we know, that is just not possible. We can tell you this is a Jagged Ambush Bug in the genus Phymata, which you can verify on BugGuide where it states: “typically found on flowers in open or semi-open habitats.” While they are waiting on blossoms and plants, Ambush Bugs rely on camouflage to assist them in ambushing prey, often pollinating insects.
