This bug is yellow/orange in color and very interesting looking. It is about a 1/2 inch in length, not including antenna. All 6 of the striped legs are attached to the thorax and the back end sits up a little higher at an angle.

    Little blurry to be certain but I’d hazard that this is Pselliopus barberi.
