Your letter to the bugman:  I have tried to identify this insect, most of the evidence suggests its some kind of Triatoma, but its hind legs are very thick.

Big Legged Bug

Dear Mr tropics,
This is a Big Legged Bug in the family Coreidae, probably in the genus Acanthocephala, not a Kissing Bug.  The Big Legged Bug poses no threat to humans.

Location: Honduras

    Not sure, but I think it has the flattened disc in the antennae like Thasus or Pachylis.
