Walking stick identity
We found this insect inside our house. It appears to be a walking stick, but much smaller and finer than the ones we usually see. It is a little over two inches long including its folded legs in front. It has light colored speckles/stripes on its back sets of legs. Could you tell me what species it might be? We are in Asheville, NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Thank you,
This is a Thread Legged Bug in the Assassin Bug subfamily Emesinae, probably Emesaya brevipennis.
