Also posted at https://bugguide.net/node/view/1854678. I believe this is a fourth-instar nymph of Driotura gammaroides. I'm pretty sure this is Driotura gammaroides, or at least that genus, and that it's a fourth-instar nymph.

Also posted at https://bugguide.net/node/view/1853832. Nymph was swept from prairie vegetation on July 6. Adult emerged on July 9. Not sure which ventral pic is better, so I uploaded both.

I think the body shrank some between when the live pics were taken and when the specimen pics were taken.

I'm thinking it's probably Neozygina balli , based on similarity to a specimen that Chris Dietrich examined and which was also found in Houston: https://bugguide.net/node/view/1005584/bgimage

May be an earlier instar of the same species as (or close relative of) https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/50562572, which I think is Flexamia.
