Leaf-footed bug

Description:

It is a Leptoglossus oppositus, which looks very much like Leptoglossus fulvicornis but can be distinguished from it by its deeper scallops in the leaf-like feature of the hind tibia (according to EOL) and by its three white spots across the back (according to bugguide.net).

Habitat:

urban (backyard)

Notes:

He is the member of the leaf-footed bug family Coreidae, becouse of the wide flanges on its rear legs.
