Nymph of a masked hunter

6577.    Today august 13th 2019, i found that thing! It was indoors in my house entrance walking on my carpet. It looked like white dust as if it were a white thread of something. It looked furry and like a spider. It was so small it could have been the size of a sesame. For now, i only found one! Please let me know what that is. Thank you. Laval, Quebec. Canada


Number 6577.  This looks like a young nymph of a masked hunter (Reduvius personatus), an assassin bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Reduviidae) often found indoors; Click here for an image. It is an introduced species with a cosmopolitan distribution and is reported to have a very painful bite.
