Maybe a Coreid?

Moved from not yet identified nymphs. Agrees perfectly, indeed!

Moved from Leaffooted Bugs.


I don't believe this is a Reduviid, as the constriction behind the eyes is not pronounced, and the head is not elongate.
-Sean McCann

Easy mistake to make, confusing coreids with reduviids. Might be a nymph of Spartocera. Really nice image, too.
