I can’t tell what kind of bug this is. After doing a little research online I started to think it could possibly be a wheel bug nymph. After taking a better look, the fanned part of the back legs, the narrower torso and all black color are leading me to believe it might not be a wheel bug nymph. I found it on my front door late at night. Thanks.

Hi Nathan,
You have good eyes.  This is a Leaf Footed Bug nymph in the family Coreidae.  We believe it is an immature
Acanthocephala species.
