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.
