I found this wheel bug (?) quite dead in some leaf debris on my parents’ deck. From what I’ve heard, this was a smallish one. I thought this photo showed the distinctive wheel and the proboscis pretty well.

Wheel Bug

Hi Kitsa,
Thank you for sending this photo of a Wheel Bug that did not survive the storm.  We have already decided that we are receiving so many Wheel Bug identification requests this month that we are making it the Bug of the Month for November even though it held the exact same honor in November of 2008.
