Coreidae (Leaf-footed bugs)
Cool!! Reminds me of Skull kid from The Legend of Zelda.
GreenBugs, this is not a Reduviid, you can tell because of the "leaf-like" structures on the third pair of legs, and also the beak is quite long and thin to be a reduviid.
I think it is a Dictyopharidae nymph, not a Fulgoridae (Pryops belongs to Fulgoridae)... My guess Thanatodictya genus.

Thanks, Ava T-B!
Gracias, Sigg. Justo acabo de añadir un par de fotos de esta oruga mientra mudaba...
Yes, actually I got to Phthiacnemia because it was the only genus without metallic iridescense on the surface of the body and the humeral angle. But I agree with you, it is better to leave it at the complex.
