I have no idea what this bug is...all I know is it was stupidly tiny and had an almost translucency to it. It was extremely hard to light with flash.

It's just a plant bug but a 'teneral' adult, having very recently moulted. If you kept coming back you would have seen it change from something like this -

It takes a couple of hours during which time they are very vulnerable and tend to hide away. I don't blame them, I hide away when I'm naked too :biggrin:

Here's an example of one having very recently moulted - you can see the shed skin just above it -

It's sometimes hard to work out quite what the adult will look like once the change is complete!

Thanks all, and Euua, FantasticG is right, but you have to develop an eye for it. They are very small critters so you might stare at a single spot for a couple of minutes before spotting one. It gets easier the longer you do it.
