Assassin bug ?


A large true bug, 3 to 4 cm long body, mainly brown, with orange discoloration on joints of legs - I believe it may be some assassin bug. Elongated and flattened body, with very long antennae and long legs.


This one have been hanging in our office in Abuja for the last three days... Central area of the city; close to a large lake and green area with a lot of gardens.
