presume Order Hemiptera or could it be nymphal stage of some Orthoptera? Found on leaf in Richmond Pk SW London in may last year.

Never seen one of those before. I see why you are thinking Hemiptera. Are the antenna kind of funny for Orthoptera? Also, kind of has a Homoptera look to it but prob not. It looks dead and dehydrated in the pic or was that a live insect when the pic was taken?

Its Hemipteran, probably the nymph of one of the species of Mirid - it does not look like its going to live much longer, looks a little battered to say the least.

Well done - someone on the diptera forum ID'd it as the nymph of a Plant Bug Rhabdomiris striatellus.
