Doesn't Really look like a Coreide
Since i just finished keying 500 specimen to family a couple of days ago i thought i could help it to family. You have an amazing picture of the membrane on the forewings if there were few i would have said this is a Lygeaidae, but thats not the case then my second guess was either Pyrrocoreidae, or Largidae, and usually Pyrrocoreidae have a colored band between the pronotum and head (and a more round pronotum), so i would have to guess Largidae for family. I wish i could tell you for sure, but with out looking at i couldnt, if you find another, and have access to a scope check the membrane of the wings for few veins, and check to see if there is a scent gland between the 2nd and 3rd coxae

Looks like a Largus succinctu
Looks like a Largus succinctus, one of the bordered plant bugs.

You probably ment a bug.
The specimen belongs to the Hemiptera. From the features I can distinguish in the picture I would probably put it in the family of the Coridae. The size reported puzzles me, 1.5mm or 15mm (1.5cm).
I hope it helps.

15mm it is.
