small green stink bug - Tepa brevis

small green stink bug - Tepa brevis
Green River, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, USA
July 28, 2014

Moved tentatively based on the following Dave Rider's comment:
"Species of Tepa are difficult to ID, even when you have the specimen in hand. Most of the critical characters are in the shape of the ostiolar rugae (ventral surface), and in the male genitalia. Given that, my guess is that this specimen is probably Tepa brevis. Tepa yerma may be the only species so far recorded from Wyoming, and it could be that species, but to me, the shape of the head and the anterolateral margins of the pronotum look more like T. brevis."

Moved from Tepa.

Moved tentatively; nice bug, man
