I agree with Coreidae, Leaf-footed bug (please, correct the mis-spelling) and it is a nymph. But I am not sure if this really is Leptoglossus phyllopus, I am not even sure if it is a Leptoglossus sp.. Nymphs are often almost impossible to ID. I certainly see some similarities with Leptoglossus phyllopus, but I would not dare to confirm that. These nymphs are showing an amazing change in appearance during the different stages:

If you are sure you may leaf it as Leptoglossus phyllopus. if you are not sure I personally would go with Leaf-footed Bug Nymph and Coreidae.
