A nice mid-sized group. I usually find the adults of the very small reddish nymphs. These were already dangerous looking.

Someone is trying to say the bug I posted pm here, is the same as this. Can you check mine please, i dinto think so, i didn't see much of a wheel on the back, i don't recall.

I hope they haven't taken to ganging up on larger prey...I can see the next TV special now: "When Assassin Bugs Attack!" :-)
