Xerophloea - Xerophloea viridis - Female

Third instar (image 1) swept from mostly grasses. Kept on sunflower. Molted on about July 20 to fourth instar, on July 27 to fifth instar, and on Aug. 5 to adult. Adult about 5.5 millimeters to wingtips.

Images 2 and 3 are the fourth instar, and images 4 and 5 are the fifth.

Pretty sure it's X. viridis but would appreciate confirmation or correction.
