I have discovered that I made an error with this spottings common name. It should be assassin bug and not thread-legged bug. I believe the genus to correct though. I apologize for the misinformation and inconvenience. :/

You're welcome, it was my pleasure. They're pretty abundant where I go spotting. Funny thing is that I hadn't noticed one until this summer and now that I know they're there I've seen dozens of them.

Thanks so much! I'm not as good with the invertebrates :)
