Dear bugman,
We saw this interesting bug on the rough bark of a tree not far from a small river in the jungle of Taman Negara, Malaysia. We have searched may bug-identification sites, but have not been able to find anything like it, and are hoping that you can help.

Assassin Bug

Hi Tricia,
This looks to us like an Assassin Bug in the family Reduviidae.  We will try to determine a species identification for you.
