I found this guy on my pool deck. I live in the Los Angeles area and I spotted him on August 15, 2016. He is a cute little guy that flies ando crawles.
This Leaf Footed Bug is Leptoglossus zonatus, a species that can be identified, according to BugGuide, by: “Two yellowish spots on the forward part of the pronotum are distinctive. Also has a zigzagging white band across the wings (like some other species). Expansions of the hind tibiae are also much larger and more jagged than most other species.”
Thanks so much, I have been up all night trying to find him. I narrowed it down a bit, but thank you for zeroing in on him. They all look so different. This guy’s fancy and extra colorful!
Thank you for responding so quickly!
I just love what you do. Thanks for helping me with my curiosity of life’s little creatures.
