This is the cutest little creature I've ever found in my apartment. Can anyone ID it? It's only about 4mm long. It's rather clumsy, and only hops about 3 inches.

Now that I know what it is, I actually found a dead one two weeks ago behind some drawers being devoured by Pheidole moerens.

 

I also had this one for a short while.
