Found the bug in the attached images in my yard in the Philippines. I would just like to know what it is so grateful for your help.
Signature: no preference
We began our research by locating a matching image on The Flying Kiwi where this Leaf Footed Bug in the family Coreidae is identified as a Citron Bug, Leptoglossus gonagra, from Viet Nam. We located another matching image on Forestry Images. Continued research revealed that the Citron Bug or Passionvine Bug is also represented on BugGuide which provides this information: “a widespread neotropical sp. ranging into the Gulf states (FL-TX) & MO; also widespread in the tropical & subtropical regions of the Old World.”
Briliant Daniel, thanks for the speedy help.
