Moved per the following offline comment by Dr Jason Botz:
"I looked at it again today with my colleague, Dr. Susan Romero, who knows Lygaeoidea better than I do. It would help if we could see some of the ventral features (e.g. bucculae). Still, we arrived at a consensus that it's almost certainly not Nysius, and is more likely Neortholomus sp., possibly the same species as

which I'm not sure is actually N. scolopax."

Moved from False Chinch Bug.

Moved tentatively; looks like a clever, distnictive Nysius
too bad nobody knows them...
