Hi there!
Just came to say " hey i have a wheel bug nymph too!"

We found one that looks just like your picture in Defiance Ohio. Everyone I talked to has never seen one of these before. Thanks for the picture so I could identify it!

Wheel bug nymph.
Lovely portrait of a wheel bug nymph. Note the very short, pronounced beak. Coreid bugs have a much longer beak, but folded beneath the body so as not to show when not in use.
