We have been finding this on an upstairs front porch in our backyard. There are probably groups of 10-20 of them at any given time. Bugs are approx 1-2 inches in length.
These are Leaf Footed Bugs in the family Coreidae, and they are members of the genus , which are commonly called Big Legged Plant Bugs. According to BugGuide, there are four species in the genus and all four can be found in Texas.
