Oecanthinae nymph - less than 8 hours of age - Oecanthus
Kansasville, Kenosha County, Wisconsin, USA June 18, 2008 Size: 2-3mm w/o antennae & legs
The nymphs are very active, very wary and very fast -- even jump. Visualized preening antennae at 24 hours of age. 1 cm from tip of antennae to tip of outstretched back legs. Hoping to sustain this nymph to adulthood in order to get a definite ID of species.
