Another one for my what-the-heck-is-this list. Around 2 cm (4/5 of an inch). Very strange bug, with wings like Pentatomoidea, but with a very wide, trapezoidal body. It has a very complex structure in the back, with no visible function. Although it looks like a nymph, it flew when I came close. Very strong front legs ending in a kind of a claw.
Family Reduviidae (Assassin Bugs), Subfamily Phymatinae (Ambush Bugs)
