My mom brought me this bug cause usually I can identify them for her, sometimes with the help of Google and this website lol.   But I’ve never seen anything like this.  It looks like a bug covered in debris, but I can’t scrap off the debris…  I have a video of it and tried to get pics, but it’s so small picture is difficult

Debris-Carrying Lacewing Larva

Dear Brandon,
This is a predatory debris-carrying Lacewing Larva.  The larvae of Green Lacewings often camouflage themselves with debris including carcasses of their prey.  Your individual has adorned itself with the carcass of an ant. 

Update:  December 1, 2017
Awesome thanks a bunch!  Shortly after I posted this I had the idea to Google “debris bug” cause I had no idea what would use literal debris and body parts.  We discovered it was a lacewing larvae and we were so intrigued.  I went out and put him on a plant in our garden and we watched him climb around for a few minuts.  We actually got to watch him eat aphids as well!  It was so cool to see life on such a small scale still taking it’s course as normal, like I wasn’t even watching!

We wish we could get away with checking our emails every two months.

We found this spider already deceased and decided to take a picture and try to identify it in case we find more of them.

Tailless Whipscorpion

Dear Dalton,
This is a Giant Crab Spider or Huntsman Spider in the family Sparassidae.  There is a similar looking image on Arácnidos de Centroamérica.

Correction courtesy of Karl
Hi Daniel. I think this is actually a Tailless Whipscorpion (Amblypygi). Regards, Karl

Thanks for the correction Karl.  Now that you have brought this to our attention, we agree with you that this is a Tailless Whipscorpion.  They look much more distinctive alive.

Lined June Beetle

Dear Anywhere,
This is not a moth.  It is a Lined June Beetle in the genus
Polyphylla, most likely the Ten Lined June Beetle, a common species found during the summer in Southern California.  This is late in the season for a sighting.  BugGuide does include September sightings in both Arizona and California, but there are no reported October sightings.
