Hi there! The leaf footed bug (nymph) is often confused with the Assassin Bug. Here's how you can tell them apart. Coreidae nymphs eat plants, so like cattle, they herd. Assassin bugs (Reduviidae) eat other insects. They're hunters, so they're typically solitary. Here's a video of some leaf footed bug nymphs for you.
