We have a thread on the local gardening forum debating what actually is the insect living in peat moss. It is not a mealy bug and smaller than the whitefly. Some think it is a fungus gnat. It is only about 1/10" in size.
I see lots of them in my seed boxes where I sow my Nepenthes seeds. They also seem to only gather on Ceph rhizomes which are rotting away and leave the good ones alone. Whenever I open the boxes to check on the seeds, they quickly hide back into the peat. My mantid nymphs love them.
Just what is is this insect?
