Is this a disgusting bug that I caught on my silver mamei?

It looks like a mosquito. 🀒 I’ve had several new(er) plants incarcerated this past week. As I was getting ready to spray her down with more insecticide, I saw this black bug/thing between the shoots! Eik! Is it a nasty bug? I pulled the growth shoot apart to see it. Ohmygosh. This plant parent thing is heartbreaking sometimes! @Philolover

Cordyligaster septentrionalis, maybe?
@HeyLillie was that English?
The abdomen doesn’t look like it though. I think it may just be the classic fungus gnat taking a nap.
@GrownFuchsia Did it have stripes?
@ThisCalatheaCan didn’t look like it had stripes. I finally plucked it out this morning and flushed it. So gross!🀒 πŸ€ͺ
Grooosss! I hope it didn’t lay eggs.🀞
