Bug of the Week - January 30, 2013

Take a close look at the Bug of the Week before answering - do you know what it is? If you think you do, let me know by posting a comment with your ID. In a week, I'll share the answer and give you another insect ID challenge.

I'm offline this week, so haven't been able to see who answered last week's correctly and give them a proper shout out. But if you answered tarnished plant bug (Lygus lineolaris), you were correct!
