Leaf -Footed Bug

Leptoglossus occidentalis (Coreidae)


This little bug is around 3/4 inch from head to tail with quite distinctive markings on its back, 6 legs and two fairly long antenna. It has been hanging around our garden in Turkey for several days. I am fairly certain it is the same one as it has one of its middle legs missing on the left side.

After seeing your spotting we were able to identify a bug that was in our school in Maine, United States - at least it looks exactly the same.
