thanks for the species id!

Moved from True Bugs.

Rhopalidae - no doubt!


Not Miridae.
This is not a mirid. Note thick, short antennae, no cuneus on front wings. Probably something in the Lygaeodea, or Rhopalidae, or Coreidae, in that order of confidence. Sorry I can't narrow it further.

moved to Hemiptera
Now I feel a little better getting it wrong, when it's so confusing to place:-)
