Dear Bugman
It´s the first time in 9 year I saw in my yard a large bug like this (about 2.5 cm long)
Can you help me identify it.

Dear bicvenaa,
This is a Big Legged Bug in the genus
Acanthocephala.  We cannot provide you with an exact species, but here is a similar looking individual, also from Venezuela, that is posted to Minden Pictures stock photo agency.

Dear Daniel,
Thank you so much for your response.
According to the picture from Minden Pictures no doubts about genus Acanthocephala.
