Pentatomid + friend - Nezara viridula

Pentatomid + friend - Nezara viridula
Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County, Florida, USA
June 8, 2006
See? Heteroptera and Homoptera can live together after all!

Moved
Moved from Stink Bugs.
For Reasons compare comment on Nezara page.

Coexistence :):):):)
Just one problem though: Either I'm blind or the friend has vanished.

 
Ate him up
Since Sean made the post, the Pentatomid ate up the friend and the husk of the friend blew away. Coexistance is out of style anyway.

Critter found
Replying to my own comment. Now I see the other critter. A little orthopteran nymph (katydid) at the bug's rear, toward the foreground.

Coexistence vindicated!

Ah, I see it now,
but is it orthopteran or hompoteran (aphid) as Sean suggests?

 
Can't tell
I can't tell, even at "full size" if those are cornicles at the rear, or tall back legs. Still, since Sean was there I will go along with what he says about ID (and which I had overlooked).
