Squash Bug

Unknown insect

The preceding photograph shows a Squash Bug (Family Coreidae), a.k.a. “Leaf-footed Bug,” spotted along the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows Park. Special thanks to Mark Jette for showing the bug to me and to Kim Phillips, Small Wonders, for confirming Mark’s field identification!
