Hello!

So two weeks ago I purchased some budwing nymphs, two of them have just molted and I realised I have no clue what instar they are…? Is there anyway someone could tell me and idea if I give a photo reference against a coin or something like that?

At the moment they’re eating Hydei fruit flies but could probably handle house flies. They can probably only go one more molt in their 5 oz deli cups so they’re a decent size.
