Size: 6~7 mm
white and green bug. Immature? At MV lamp.

Moved from Reuteria.

Moved from Plant Bugs.

It's a Reuteria sepcies...
and it seems close to Reuteria wheeleri according to the description of Henry.

Cedar Creek shows Reuteria fuscicornis that has mostly black second antennal segments.

may be the same species.

insects would fly only when fully mature [except for subimaginal mayflies!]
this one is a beautiful plant bug from the largest true bug family [Miridae] w/hundreds of NA genera. can't tell you more, sorry; but it looks so distinct a mirid expert could tell right away, i think.
i like your pic a lot.
