Thought you might could add this to the Bug Love section, if you still have it. I couldn’t find it while on the site on my mobile phone. Plant: Platycodon grandiflorus

Hi, so I found a bug crawling outside which I have never seen before and did some research but couldn’t find any pictures of that bug at all, I hope you know what it is, thank you.

Probably Leaf Footed Bug Nymph

Dear Kira,
This is an immature True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera, and we believe it is a Leaf-Footed Bug in the family Coreidae.  We love the polka-dot background on your image.

Having trouble figuring out what this is. Nymphs seem particularly tricky. Looks a little like an assasin bug nymph. Hoping you can help.

Leaf Footed Bug Nymph

Dear Ecuaprof,
This is a different True Bug family.  This is an immature Leaf Footed Bug in the genus
Acanthocephala, and considering your northern location, it is almost surely Acanthocephala terminalis, which is pictured on BugGuide.

These are immature True Bugs and we are pretty certain they are hatchling Leaf Footed Bugs in the family Coreidae.  We believe they are in the genus
Leptoglossus.  Here is a BugGuide image that looks quite similar.

Immature Leaf Footed Bug

Dear Patricia,
This is an immature Leaf Footed Bug, probably in the genus
Acanthocephala, and we believe its red coloration is due to its having recently molted.  It should soon darken in color.

Thank you!!! I thought it was a pretty cool bug to find
