Can anyone tell me what insect is this?


Size:
Approximately 2.5mm

Description:
Cotton like end, don't think it flies

You should capture it and send it for identification. Who knows, it some new insect and you get to know it. :P

I can say its head is pointing down by looking at its legs.

Hi there;
On the "World Biggest Star Planet - Part II" web page you asked where to find Cephei on a star map. It is located in the constellation Cepheus; the Right ascension is 21h 56m 39.14s and the Declination +63° 37' 32".

One of the largest know stars is the hypergiant star Canis Majoris. It can be found in the Constellation Canis Major; Right ascension 07h 22m 58.29s and Declination -25° 46' 03.5".
