Default Baby leaffooted bug

This is a cute little guy lol. The adults get to be big and heavy, over an inch long with a low buzz sound when they fly. Being a "true" bug it will get one pair of wings on its last molt. They are harmless, but often mistaken for assassin bugs or wheel bugs which can deliver a painful sting.
