plant bug nymph? - Poecilocapsus lineatus

plant bug nymph? - Poecilocapsus lineatus
Baiting Hollow, Suffolk County, New York, USA
June 4, 2009
Observed on mint. I think the leaf damage is caused by this nymph.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like the nymph of
the Four-lined Plant Bug (Poecilocapsus lineatus):

They feed on mint.

Thanks, Ken
I've long wondered who the culprit is out there in the mints.
Guess it's time for better fall cleanup!
