Interesting plant bug #3 Himacerus mirmicoides

never seen this little bug before. Thought it was an extra large ant when I first spotted it, then thought it was a flightless wasp but then I spotted it's proboscis. very fast mover unlike most plant bugs. Body length about 5mm.

Id'd as Himacerus mirmicoides nymph
