Your letter to the bugman:  Found this on a plant on my porch. It seemed like a praying mantis from far, with lanky legs. But on closer look, it had this strange hump on it’s back, like armor plated look. It’s body was very wide though, with interesting markings on the wings.
How you want your letter signed:  J

Dear J,
Congratulations on your first Wheel Bug sighting.  You are not the first person to describe it as looking like a dinosaur.
