Aphid Wolf

Dear Holly,
This is a Lacewing Larva, commonly called an Aphid Wolf.  Many folks experience unprovoked bites from Lacewing larvae, and the irritation from a bite might last a week or longer, so in that sense, you are lucky you did not sit on it with exposed skin.  Though it causes some irritation, the bite of a Lacewing larva is not considered dangerous.  We are incredibly amused at the composition of your image.
