Just wondering what type of bug this little guy is. He has a small round red head, his body is black , flat and he has two long antenna with 4 small greenish legs and two greenish grasshopper like legs . He’s kinda cool . It looks like there is also a little red segment between his head and body and like he has 2 smaller antenna or feelers on top of his head but under the longer antenna. I hope this is enough info to figure it out.
Signature: Hope to hear back, Thank you. Cathy
