Tiny semi-transparent bug, 3mm long and 1mm wide. Except for the dark markings, the wings are a pale transparent green, which can then become the same green as whatever leaf it is sitting on (second picture). The proboscis is as long as the thorax (see pictures 4 and 5). Family Miridae.
Found on a leaf at night, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
