Western Conifer Seed Bug

Leptoglossus occidentalis


This species is sometimes colloquially called "the leaf-footed bug", but actual leaf-footed bugs are an entire group of species in Leptoglossus and related genera of the Coreidae. Western conifer seed bugs are also sometimes mistakenly identified as stink bugs due to the unpleasant aroma they emit when disturbed.


Found on my house. Flew away after only one photo.
