Sorry I just email you about this bug cause I thought my mom found it but it was found in Houston Texas, Not Western Nebraska.
While we were pretty certain that this is an Ambush Bug, we had not seen any examples in the past with this distinctive marking. When we searched BugGuide, we learned that Ambush Bugs in the genus Macrocephalus are characterized by this particular pattern. While we have no shortage of Ambush Bug images on our site, we believe this is the first documentation we have of the genus Macrocephalus, at least that we have identified to that level.
