Moved from Chlorochroa.


Chlorochroa (Rh.) osborni, more likely
[i'll try to have it checked]

Chlorochroa (Rhytidolomia) osborni
Joe Eger det.

fresh idea: Chlorochroa (Rhytidolomia) belfragii
a bold call: Ch.(Rh.) belfragii is a rare bug not reported from OK, accg. to McPherson, 1982 -- but it keys just fine

Having trouble
with couplet 21: beak 2 and 3 usually subequal (2 is noticeably longer than 3). I wish I could see if there is a small projection on venter 2.

Moving to species until other
Moving to species until otherwise contradicted

looks like

but it has not been IDed.

yup... (Thyanta comes to mind)

Originally I thought
it might be a Thyanta but couldn't find a comparable image and the tip of the scutellum is dilated like that of Dendrocoris.

Great photo of a great bug
...actually it looks more like wooden art -- maple with oak and mahogany inlay :)
