Leptoglossus phyllopus
Thank you for confirming the ID and distinctive feature. That's what I thought -- and that's what it says in the Guide -- but after a couple of hours of viewing bug photos, I'm never sure what's an identifying feature and always concerned that I may have totally overlooked something obvious. Thanks again. (Marvin)
