Help! Can you IDENTIFY? My normally healthy rudbeckias are all shriveling up and I looked today and saw these on them and other plants which are also shriveling up – echinacea, lead plant, other daisy type plants etc. eating the leaves.. It’s springtime (June 1)
Signature: Thank You!

This is not a beetle.  It is a True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera, but we have not had any luck determining a species for you.  Nymphs can be very difficult to identify to the species level.

    I think these are nymphs of the four-lined plant bug, Poecilocapsus lineatus. See http://bugguide.net/node/view/13224/bgimage
