Plant Bug

Dear Photographer,
We believe this is a Plant Bug in the family Miridae.  Here is a similar looking individual from the North American insect site BugGuide and BugGuide states that identifying features of Mirid Plant Bugs include:  “
antennae mostly long and thin …legs slender, delicate.”  It closely resembles Trigonotylus ruficornis pictured on British Bugs.
