Leaf Footed Bug

A NEW BUG QUERY FROM CONNECTICUT, followup (8-25-05)
Hello,
I don’t know what category to check and, therefore, can not find your ID of my "armored tank" bug. Do you have a special "New Q & A" page? Thanks.

Hello Bugman!
Today I discovered this critter, lurking on a phlox leaf, in a Connecticut garden. He wasn’t skittish and flew, a short distance, only after I disturbed his leafy perch. Thanks.
