I'd like a biting bug identified that is causing me no end of itching!! Unfortunately I cannot post a photo as the instant reaction was to squash it as it pierced my hand so sorry about that! I was bitten at midday 3 days ago (early September) in a grassy field in Cheshire on a warm sunny day. The insect was tiny - about 1-2mm in length, black in colour and a thin elongated body rather than round. The itching sensation has worsened and intensified and I have a small red raised area at the site of biting. I've had a look for it on various bug ID sites but cannot find the little creature.
Looking forward to knowing the name of the little creature.
