Leaf-footed Bug - Leptoglossus phyllopus

Leaf-footed Bug - Leptoglossus phyllopus
Cass County, Texas, USA
November 12, 2007
Size: 12 - 18 mm
The Goldenrod has been swarming with hundreds of these for the past few weeks; even now, when almost all the blooms have turned to opened seed pods.

They feed on seeds.
I have most often found Leptoglossus and other coreids associated with the pods of legumes, but they may well feed on the seeds of other plants, too....

Leptoglossus phyllopus
I believe the white bar is distinctive of the species.

Thanks John. The info is appreciated.
