This is a very nice observation.

@wongun, I have been told elsewhere that this is in Nicostratus Distant, 1904, Surinamellini, Deraeocorinae, Miridae. That taxon is missing from iNaturalist. When I am back on my computer, I will flag for curation.

The genus has been entered into iNat with some species.
