Probably Coreid Bug

Probably Coreid Bug

Dear Sam,
We are relatively certain that this True Bug is in the family Coreidae, the Leaf Footed Bugs, but we have not been able to identify it to the species level.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide a more specific identification.
  We tried unsuccessfully to identify it on Cesar Crash’s Brazilian site Insetologia.

Update:  December 5, 2014
Thanks to a comment by Cesar Crash, we now know that this is
Pachylis pharaonis.  It is pictured  on Coreoidae.speciesfile and on Animals Animals.

    Daniel, I recieved twice nymphs of this bug. They’re pretty cool gregary nymphs and I only know they belong to it because of this picture that a reader found in the internet:

    PyBio has one adult (or two)in the bottom of the page, but unidentified http://www.pybio.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/007a5.jpg

    It was very interesting for me too.
    It’s being more than one year since I recieved the nymphs, that time I didn’t know Esalq http://www.me.esalq.usp.br/nof.php
    I searched there now, and it was very quick.
