Your letter to the bugman:  Hola! I see some weird bugs here daily. But this was a first. He was on the drivers side window of my car and about 1 – 1 1/2” long. My friend said it was a stink bug, but I can’t find an image online that matches it.
How you want your letter signed:  Sandra

Big Legged Bug

Dear Sandra,
This looks to us like a Big Legged Bug in the genus
Acanthocephala.  They are in the same order as Stink Bugs, but in a different family.
