How about another identify this




This is one of the more alien like space bugs I've seen. It was about an inch in length.

I have NO idea what that is but it is creepy AF.


RE: How about another identify this




Not an entomologist, but some sort of mantis? Idk.

Looks like a ARILUS CRISTATUS, otherwise known as a Wheel Bug. I am not good with copy/paste but I do believe that's what you've got!

One of the assassin bugs that eat my bees.....careful, their bite is very painful.


RE: How about another identify this




Thanks. Evil looking thing. But glad he's a predator of pest bugs.


RE: How about another identify this




I have no idea what that is, but I just have to comment on that's is a great photo! Pretty sure it's not a bug to mess with.


RE: How about another identify this




Yep. Assassin/wheel bug. Real bugs, as opposed to beetles or flies, have a stiletto like mouth...you can see that clearly in your pic. Fun find.


RE: How about another identify this




Looks like Wheel Bug is correct. Never heard of that.
