Exotic insect

Asked September 6, 2019, 3:55 PM EDT

I discovered what appears to be an exotic insect outside my home in Maple valley Wa. The creature is about half the size of a pea. It has 6 legs that are black with white joints. Its body is partly transparent and its entire body is thin as paper. It first appeared to have wings, but closer examination shows a body shaped like an open flower with 4 pedals front and rear and right and left. its overall color is transparent or grey/black. I believe it could be a new species. Please advise as to who I might contact.
