The hitchhikers were actively crawling around on the surface of this small (4.6 mm) dung beetle, Aphodius rusicola. At a mercury vapor lamp, suburban NJ. They are apparently phoretic mites (using the beetle as transportation but not feeding on it), perhaps Macrochelidae.

"Honey, there's a big wasp caught in a spiderweb in the kitchen. I better kill it before it gets loose. Do you want pics first?"

Well, turns out it wasn't a wasp, it was a huge (2.8 cm) wasp-mimic fly -- a Mydas Fly, Mydas tibialis. And it wasn't getting loose. The fly would start struggling & the spider would retreat, but it kept coming back. It went after joints in the fly's appendages to find a chink in the armor and inject its venom. Here you can see it latched onto an antenna; it also used the legs.

or maybe I. julia? I think this has the darker color & blunter angle between PM line & costa. And it has none of the white outlining along the postmedian line, & not much where the lines meet the costa.

Found resting in the grass in my lawn during the daytime. I went to carefully clear the grass blades from around it so I could get a shot, & it climbed onto my hand instead.

12.3 mm long, incl palps. Probably Agriphila ruricolella. Too worn to be certain, & wingspan works out to 20 mm, exactly at the overlap between that and A. vulgivagella. But the yellower color is more consistent with rurucolella, as are the darker smudges (which look like remnants of the postmedian & subterminal line darkening).
