Leaf Footed Bug from Mexico

Mexican bug
Dear Bug man,
I´ve had these odd bugs living with me in Mexico! I haven’t a clue what they are and would loe to know more about them. They are very beautiful. Pictures are attached. Cheers,
Amber McNair

Hi Amber,
These are immature Leaf Footed Bugs. They are probably in the genus Thassus. They might be a color variation of the Giant Mesquite Bug, Thasus acutangulus, or they might be a separate species.
