Bizarre \"ant like beetle\" spotted in Greece

Θεσ&#, Greece

Yet again I encountered another beetle that I would like to identify. Although this time it looks a lot more unique. I'm assuming it's a longhorn beetle due to it's long horns but I'm not an expert...

This is not a beetle, but a true bug in the family Miridae. There are several species in this family that appear to be ant mimics, especially in their nymphal stages. See https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/466/18538893292_48db6dbe1f_b.jpg for some more examples.
