Hi there I live in Portland, OR and discovered this bug the other day in a friends back yard. I don’t know if you can tell but it is rather small, that is a mason jar behind it. There is also a proboscis(sp)thing that you cant really see form this picture. It is really pretty and I am curious what it is I have never seen anything like it.
You should handle this Assassin Bug nymph with caution as many members in the family will bite if provoked or carelessly handled. We don’t recognize the species and we have the energy to research the species tonight.
