|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The fourth nymphal instars are yellowish-green marked with red, black and pink marking. Wing pads, or incompletely developed wings are present on the 4/25 inch (4 mm) long body. Legs are pink. About half way through this stage, a striking change occurs in the appearance of the instars. The new red markings found in the earlier portion of this stage fade to yellow-green, paler than the rest of the insect body such that the insect changes from mostly red to green. It takes about 2 weeks for this color change to occur.
