Hi Bugman! This odd guy was spotted by a friend of mine in northeastern TN while she was out berry picking. She said it was about half an inch long. What the heck is it?!

This is an immature Leaf Footed Bug in the family Coreidae, and it looks like a good match for this image on BugGuide of Acanthocephala terminalis, though we concede it might be a related species.
