Parsley Party (Ebony Bugs, Thyreocoridae)

several small shiny black true bugs on little yellow-white flowers

Unidentified bugs feed on the flower clusters of a parsley plant. (Bonus thrips in there, too, but might be hard to spot.)

These little black bugs are almost beetle-like at first glance. I’m too lazy to look them up, but— Okay, I gave identifying them a crack at it, and actually found what I think is the family (Thyreocoridae), appropriately dubbed “Ebony Bugs.” My daring stopped at the family level however. (Black and white version after the break.)
