Bitty green bug

Bitty green bug
Dripping Springs, Hays County, Texas, USA
January 11, 2012
Size: ~2mm
I was finding these in male Ashe Junipers that were still producing pollen.

May be nymph of these

These adults are near the same time and location as your nymph.
(They also may not be correctly Id'ed. Labopidea spp. host on onions.)

Yes, those look familiar to me, and I was kicking myself for not getting a photo of one of them as well. Just to explain my lack of foresight, I caught spider eating the nymphs, hence my focus on the nymphs to the exclusion of adults I was finding in other trees. Thank you!

Moved from ID Request.

Mirid nymph, I presume.
I'm not sure how much further the ID can be taken.

Still informative
Thank you! It's still informative for me because I found a Mecaphesa crab spider eating these critters when few other critters of any sort are around.
