Just curious… I work as a fire fighter and at the station i found this bug. Its august here and I work just north of Houston TX. It was out side near our trash bin just laying on the concrete. I attached a picture of it. Just thought it looked interesting and wanted to know what it was. thanks

This is an Assassin Bug, Mictomus purcis, a species with no common name. Like other Assassin Bugs, they might bite if carelessly handled, so caution needs to be exercised when encountering Assassin Bugs.
