Day 102: green again - Siphanta acuta

Day 102: green again - Siphanta acuta
Alameda County, California, USA
January 27, 2012
Size: 4.4 mm bl
On a rose stem; later fourth instar. This must be the specimen shown for Day 98, when it was pink and white. There's only one in that container.

Size is approximate and is probably an overestimate, as this specimen measured 4.5 mm in the next instar. Vegetation made it difficult to place a ruler precisely beside the bug.
