Plant Bug - Slaterocoris

Plant Bug - Slaterocoris
Cross Plains, Dane County, Wisconsin, USA
June 2, 2007

Moved from Plant Bugs.

from Thomas J. Henry:
"This is a teneral specimen, making it difficult to say what it might be. It could be a species of Slaterocoris, which would be shiny black when hardened."

Moved from Beetles.

beetle larvae are grubs, not smaller versions of the beetle itself. This is a true bug of some kind, perhaps a hopper, but someone with more knowledge than I will need to guide you further.

This is a plant bug in the family Miridae. Helps to know the plant it was on.
