Lace bugs and off-spring - Corythucha morrilli

Moved from Corythucha.

Morrill lace bug
This is Corythucha morrilli, the soutwestern "cousin" of Corytucha marmorata, the chrysanthemum lace bug. Both species have this multiple "banding" on the elytra, easily separated by the size of the lateral carina and by region. C. morrilli's lateral carinae are elongated and foliaceous, in contrast, C. marmorata's are very short and triangular-shaped.

 
Thank you
for the great description of the differences
