"windowsill #spider in Mt. Washington West" - @greenfrieda
Observation and photo by @greenfrieda
It was too fast for a good picture, but had several people also see it and confirm.
Acrocerid flies were nectarine on this plant
I had visiting Brazilian Dipterist Jéssica Gillung of UC Davis ID this as Eulonchus sapphrinus
This little female had just emerged from her final molt. I found her while she was still a bit translucent and her wings were not completely expanded yet.
I had Brendon Boudinot of the UC Davis Ward Lab identify them.

I call this pennyroyal.
aka lettuce wirelettuce??
Note chick in foreground, so they are breeding in this region.
Different looking the the other staurastrum I saw from this sample due to its split tips
