This 3mm true bug was found deep within a cottongrass (Eriophorum) seed head on 16 Sep 2017. Specimen KR17-25. Looks more like Cymus discors than angustatus, both of which are found in NB. Family CYMIDAE. Location was a woods road opposite Kent Building Supplies that I call Kent Road, Fredericton.

If interested, the name of that road is Near West Road.  

Slightly out of date UNB shapefiles used: 

Thanks, E, but it'll always be Kent Road to me.
