    (Oh, the images were taken with an Olympus FE-170, on extra macro mode, no PP because I really don't care about these pictures)

    ahhh yes i am familiar with this creature
    it appears to me to be the endangered Blur Bug native mostly to the Eastern Amazon and Southern Brazil
    where did you find such an excellent specimen?

    Ok, weird where I found it, as it appears to feed on dead plant matter. I've found a few of them near my front door, and in my fiancee's closet. Hmmm...I should investigate this farther with the purchase of a new macro lens....
