You have a couple of picture of these identified as nymphs of Mexican and Costa Rican Mesquite Beetles. I am enclosing a picture taken at Tulum Mexico in March 4th in which there appear to be two stages of the bug – does this help to identify the species?

Dear Gord,
These are Giant Mesquite Bugs in the genus
Thasus, but we cannot say for certain which species it is.
