First i thought he was in the stink bug family, but that does not seem to right, just curious what he might be. what ever it is, he is fast, and defensive, when I first poked at him he reared up as if to say, "comon just try it"":biggrin:

That's what it looks like to me - a stink bug. But I am no bug expert. I saw one very similar to this one yesterday, but it had a blue and red antenna.

Thom, this is a member of the family Coreidae (Leaf-Footed Bugs), but as it is a nymph it's difficult to tell anything more precise.

Cheers

Thanks Francis, but the stink bugs I looked up were smaller, did not have the long legs and the "horns".
I need a good insect book. I might have one, but the wife took down 2 huge bookshelves and boxed them up, no telling whats in there.:curious::smile:
