Moved
Moved from Pnirontis.

Not Pnirontis...
Unarmed protibiae rule that genus out. This is BG's first live set of Gnathobleda litigiosa. Beautiful photos so please move this wonderful addition where it belongs.

As an additional note, the beautiful head shot allows us to see that the first rostral segment is subequal to 2&3 combined rather than twice as along as 2&3 combined like in Pygolampis.

 
Thanks for the ID
I am glad the photos could help you ID this insect. Your comments are welcome and helpful.

Moved
Moved from Damsel Bugs.

NOT Nabidae.
Please move images to family Reduviidae. Thank you.
