Leaf-Footed Bug (male)

Acanthocephala spp.


This insect is considered a pest, eating and causing damage to citrus and roses. The lower rear legs are wider than the upper legs, with serrations. This is especially pronounced in the male. It has long, slim, curving antennae with distinctive orange tips. The body is reddish brown to nearly black.(Wikipedia).


Spotted in an overgrown meadow near the Arkansas river.
