Pod sucking bug - nymph

Family Alydidae

Description:

This late instar nymph is an ant mimic. This looks like the locally common green (weaver) ant and it would be an agressive model species that would be left alone by predators.

Notes:

It does look similar to the brown bean bug but not close enough to call http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_...
