Saw this strange bug on the hood of my Step Dad’s car. It is about 3 inches long and appears to have only 4 legs. I’ve never seen anything like this before. What on Earth is it?
This sure looks like a Cattail Toothpick Grasshopper, Leptysma marginicollis, to us. According to BugGuide, it: “Inhabits wet areas, and is usually found on emergent vegetation such as cattails and sedges.”
