Hi WTB !

I found this bug on a Ragweed plant during spring, but have also seen it around lights at night and also other ragweed during summer. It looks closest like a Plant Bug, but not quite. I live in Northeast Georgia, around the mountains. I cannot find it anywhere on the internet ! Please help me!
We agree that this is a Plant Bug in the family Miridae based on the long thin antennae and slender legs. We will contact Eric Eaton to see if he can provide a genus or species since the matching image we found on BugGuide was identified as an Ornate Plant Bug, Reuteroscopus ornatus.
