This is the head of a nail , measuring some .265 on an inch , or 6.73mm measured horizontally ...
What is that insect , besides being really small , I don't know .

Hmmmm , looks a little like a planthopper nymph , but not really . ( Unless its an Australian variety ) .. All the pictures on google images are in such poor focus , but none look like this !
