Spiny assassin bug

Sinea spinipes


This spiny assassin bug nymph caught a halictid bee snack. I watched this little guy grow up to adulthood. He lived in the square meter patch of "yard" outside my condo which I planted with mostly native wildflowers. Attracts a lot of creatures, but this is one of my favorites.

Very neat. Do you have a picture of the adult that you can add?
