Which species of leaf-footed bug is this? - Leptoglossus oppositus
Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, USA

Found on a sandstone column over the spillway at White Rock lake, late morning. Does not quite match any of the leaf-footed bugs I already have. Female due to lack of the large hind leg? Might be Leptoglossus phyllopus but if so, the white stripe is very faded away.

Nice
New species for me. No common name other than leaf-footed bug? Glad I trusted my instincts that it was different from any I'd seen and sent to you guys for confirmation. Really appreciate this site.

 
No other common name that I know of.
