A friend in Florida has been getting bitten by something. Today this was found on her leg. Do you know what it is.

Dear Sandie,
The dorsal view of this Wheel Bug is not the optimal vantage point to highlight its most obvious feature, the cog-like “wheel” on the thorax.  Wheel Bugs are Assassin Bugs that might bite if carelessly handled, but if your friend has received multiple bites, we would suggest searching elsewhere for the culprit.
