I am in south central Florida on the east coast. Nov 11th. My eggplant leaf was partially rolled up. I unrolled it and found this bug and tiny black eggs. I took a picture of this bug but can’t find any images on line that match. It was about 10 cm in length. It did not attempt to fly when I disturbed the leaf.
