Posts: 12Can anyone please help me identify this nymph? I noticed this as I was zooming in on the maccafertium nymph. Found in North Jersey (Big Flatbrook) last month. Thanks!

I'd suggest putting nymph on a white background and taking a larger photograph for identification. Our bug guys are good, but they may not be able to make out enough detail on the one posted here. A big white plastic cap from a cat litter jug would make a good background, or any lid with a white inside. Adding a little water might make the legs, tails, etc. stand out more.

Hi Btbo32-

Based on (what I can see of) the body shape outline, my guess would be Isonychia.
