Many thanks!
Good to finally have a name for these guys ... all the more better that it's a new genus for the guide.

Thanks also for the distinction re: the brachypterous adults as well; going back through my files I see that I did also take photos of the actual reddish nymphs as well so I will post one of those shortly.

splendid --another much-needed genus for the Guide
thanks, colleagues!!

Moved from Minute Pirate Bugs.

very cool... will show around
Moved from True Bugs.

Hope you get an ID. Bet they look like lace bugs on the leaves.
