Subject: Brown bug w/ black stripe
December 14, 2015 9:29 am
My friend found this bug today. It was about a half inch long, not including the antennae. It’s back was concave with the black stripe between two ridges that look like the back of a tiny dinosaur.
Any idea what it is?
Based on this image posted to BugGuide, we believe we have correctly identified this immature Assassin Bug as Fitchia aptera. According to BugGuide it is generally found: “on the ground about grass clumps in old fields.”
