Bayucca, you were correct. It is also the first reported to bugguide from Kentucky. Thanks again. :-)
Welcome, always wise to check my suggestions ;-)...
Thank-you bayucca. I have seen a broad-headed bug before, but the ones I am used to seeing are black. Thank-you for the id suggestion. It does look like the Lupine bug. I will verify though. :-)
It is from the same superfamily as Coreidae (Coreoidea) but it is from the family Alydidae, Broad-headed Bugs (do not ask me why "broad"...) and subfamily Alydinae.Yours might be Megalotomus quinquespinosus. Please, verify!! I am not 100% sure.http://bugguide.net/node/view/2720/bgpag...
