First instar - Euschistus servus

First instar - Euschistus servus
Repentigny, Lanaudière County, Quebec, Canada
June 25, 2014
June 25th, on the fruit of a White campion (Lychnis alba), 28 nymphs atop their egg shells. They probably hatched that day.

awesome... thanks, Claude
now, as a proverbial penance for the good deed, would you please go thru the images here and here... and make some calls/moves/comments? no rush at all, but any work on these will be hugely appreciated.

 
Yes, of course
I will probably move the similar looking nymphs under E. servus. I don't know if the other nymphs sub-species E. servus servus are similar or not to E. servus euschistoides.

 
excellent
thanks again

 
Not that useful without other species pictures
I have begun to move pictures from Euschistus-type to Euschistus nymphs. Finally, I am not comfortable to move them to E. servus because I have no idea what the other 14 Euschistus species nymphs look like. Some of them could be identical to my E. servus.

 
yeah, that's the trouble with the nymphs...
thanks, Claude
that 'Euschistus-type' uncertainty is also due to the fact that at this point i see no reliable way to differentiate nymphs of some other genera, incl. Coenus, Holcostethus, Hymenarcys, Mcphersonarcys, Moromorpha, and Dieu sait what else, of which we have at best a very vague idea what those may look like
