Spotted at our house in Independence, Missouri
Welcome to Project Noah. I look forward to more of your wonderful photos :)
Many thanks gatorfellows for helping to identify my little bug, comment and for the info on categories :-)
Woops I forgot to mention that unknown spottings are still put in their appropriate category. Other category (starfish) is used for mollusks (e.g., squid, slugs, snails, worms, etc.) and other remaining marine invertebrates (e.g., nudibranches, jellyish, starfish, etc.).
Yes it is a leaf foot bug - white zigzag stripe across hemelytra is an identifier Nice photo :)
Thank you so much Doren, I will look into it.
This appears to be a Leaf-footed Bug of the genus Leptoglossus, but I am not able to tell which species it may be. Here is a guess, but you would really need to compare it with other members of this genus:http://bugguide.net/node/view/3393
