 nymph  - Thyanta calceata

nymph - Thyanta calceata
Nursery, Victoria County, Texas, USA
May 20, 2013
Size: around 7 mm
I found it on a plant that grows along the fence of a pasture.
I took some photos and thinking about the possibility that it may molt and pass from the juvenile stage in the adult stage, I put the bug in a jar with a small piece of plant.
After three days the change happened.

Thank you!
Interesting, based on this I was pretty sure it is Thyanta custator.
I'm curious. If it was just pictures of nymph, identification would have been possible?

 
Well...
Actually, your adult looks Thyanta custator to non-expert my eyes. I need =v='s comment on this...!

 
I think,
here on comment, we have the answer.

 
Oh, I see...
Good to know! Then I've never seen that one in my yard as far as I know. But since there is one Vermont data point, I guess I have a chance to find it here in NJ too...
Now I see my nymph doesn't have that black edge and yours has it!
