Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Plant Bug - Lygus Bug
Class:Insecta Order:Hemiptera Family:Miridae Genus:Lygus

So far I've only seen the Lygus Bug nymph, which is pretty spectacular. It was green with colorful banded legs and 5 dorsal spots that look like holes.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
