Not Neortholomus scolopax
Neortholomus scolopax nymphs have 2 pairs of scent-glands openings on the back of their abdomen, not three. It might be a Rhyparochromidae ( Y sutures). Your specimen is interesting because one antenna has only 3 segments instead of 4. It happens sometimes and usually the remaining segments are longer and thicker, which is the case here.

Mine may be the same as this individual from KY:

Thanks again!

Another one
I think this other specimen #557785, belongs to the Rhyparochromidae as well.
Thanks Mike!
