Micronectae front view
Micronecta species
front view

LOOKING LIKE A STELTED MONSTER ON ROCKS, in reality this harmless insect is less then 3 millimetres and standing on grains of sand. Clearly visible are the hairs on the front legs, with these the little bug sieves for it's food. On the face are two faint orange spots.
