Leptoglossus oppositus

Summary 2

Leptoglossus oppositus is one of a variety of species of leaf-footed bug. It looks very much like Leptoglossus fulvicornis but can be distinguished by the deeper scallops in the leaf-like feature of the hind tibia and the addition of three white spots across the hemelytra. This species is widely dispersed from New York to Florida and as far west as Iowa and Minnesota, as well as the southwest regions of the United States into Mexico.
