Emesinae nymph? - Empicoris

Emesinae nymph? - Empicoris

Beat from oak tree. Perhaps a thread-legged bug nymph? I have some other live photos and a pointed specimen if that would be helpful for generic ID.

Almost certainly a nymph of Empicoris. And yes, there are some adults in other genera that exhibit brachypterism though not in this one.

Moved from Thread-legged Bugs.

Moved from True Bugs, Cicadas, Hoppers, Aphids and Allies. Thanks, v! Guess I'll move it here for now.

Emesinae, yes; nymph, probably
i wonder whether there are any brachypterous adults in this group to include in the differential -- but Swanny would know
