bug nymph - Proxys punctulatus

bug nymph - Proxys punctulatus
Donalds, Abbeville County, South Carolina, USA

Moved tentatively... too big of a temptation
Moved from Not yet identified nymphs.

would love to hear from Andrew on this one, and other nymphal submissions

ID confirmed by both J.E. Eger ("probably Proxys")...
...and D.B. Thomas ("Has to be Proxys punctulatus because of the bicolored femora")

i absolutely love Yu's call, and the photo is very good, too...
...but let's wait for the experts

Moved from ID Request.

Has me intrigued.
I'm almost sure that's right. I'll do my best to find some to rear ASAP.

would be fantastic --do your best...

Non-expert's wild guess...
Long-ish body, black & white antennae and legs make me think Black Stink Bug... But I can't find nymph image anywhere on the Internet... Anyone? (Maybe I'm far off...!)

yes, thanks!
got to be it! right at the same bush I just found an adult of this species.
