Like father, like son

Saw this little bug nymph on a fence post under an oak in the car park at Woods Mill today. Four things to go on here. One, it's got to be a late species as it's still quite an early instar nymph. Two, it's got LONG antennae, so it follows the adult will have too. Three, it's under oak. Four, it's a fairly large mirid. 

That leaves only Megacoelum infusum as a realistic option. A smart looking beast and a new record for Woods Mill. I have five records for this bug and they are all in August so the late date of the adult stacks up.
