Big Legged Bug Nymph

Dear Ginellie,
This is an immature True Bug in the family Coreidae, commonly called the Leaf Footed Bugs or Big Legged Bugs.  Based on this BugGuide image, we believe it is a first instar Big Legged Bug nymph in the genus
Acanthocephala, meaning that it has just recently hatched.  Later instar nymphs turn bluish-gray.

Location: North Carolina
