Plant Bug - Orthocephalus coriaceus - Female

O. coriaceus
Thanks, WonGun. Moved from Orthocephalus to new species page based on info and images linked to in Guide.

Thanks WonGun
With the black legs, it looks like this might be Orthocephalus coriacea, like the one you attached.

And this is a female.

The paper said...
two female specimen of the Orthocephalus saltator have black tibiae. So, I cannot be sure...

The paper
said metatibiae only (i.e. hindleg tibiae), not foretibiae or mesotibiae, which are yellowish/orangish in saltator but black in coriaceus and the above photo.

Good point!
I did not notice...

Maybe Orhthocephalus...

Moved from Plant Bugs.


Not the same specimen
Are you sure that you didn't mix up two photos accidentally?
I don't think that these two should be linked.

I sometimes post the same types of bugs at the same location and day by adding an image, then unlinking them. I forgot to unlink them.
