Leaf-Footed Bug

Leptoglossus Phyllopus (Linnaeus)


This guy was HUGE, bright green, long legs/antennae, and similar to an oversized stinkbug! I would've gone outside to snap a better picture, but I'm fairly terrified of large insects.


I found it hanging out on the deck in my backyard around Kennesaw, Georgia. The suburban area is slightly wooded.


This guy was finally identified by Goody!

Sorry I'm unable to take the ID any further.

I've seen these quite a bit as well and haven't been able to ID them. I think they are in the stink bug family.
