Zelus cf. ruficeps
Around 15mm, this insect hides on the base of corn leaves to wait for its preys.
Thanks, Torsten. I think I'd go with Z. ruficeps too.
Comparing Zelus grassans and Zelus ruficeps, I go with Z. ruficeps...
My first thought was Zelus, too - working on it...
Cool, bayucca. Thanks, I'm thinking Zelus, but I couldn't find anything similar (I mean, I find similar in morphology, that lead me to Zelus, but can't find any Zelus with this colours, so... I think I am stuck with this one). I'll wait for your help :-)
Yes, Reduviidae. Come back for this one after my holidays...
