Dorsal view of nymph and exuvium. This *might* be the nymph of the adult. It is not similar to other more common nymphs in the area and was photographed on the same plant on the same day as the adult pictured here. I was unsuccessful in raising it to adulthood, so absolutely no certainty they are the same. (See: http://bugguide.net/node/view/669624)
