Insect Fragment

Insect Fragment

This is a fragment from a green insect that was initially trapped on the fresh air filter of a ventilation system. When the filter was changed some of the insect fragments fell into the duct and were then blown into the office space. Darkfield illumination makes the setae (hairs) more evident on the body and leg fragments.
