Leaf-footed bug

Leptoglossus oppositus


I'm pretty certain he is in the family Coreidae, though not sure of the species. Small brown Hemipteran, with flattened structure on hind leg specific of leaf-footed bugs.


Found him slowly crossing the sidewalk in a neighborhood. He was missing one of his hind legs. Relocated him to a plant so not to be squashed by unnoticing passerby.
