Leaf-footed Bug - Leptoglossus zonatus

Leaf-footed Bug - Leptoglossus zonatus
Gilbert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
May 31, 2008
Size: about 20mm long
I think this is a Leptoglossus sp, but which species?

Try L. zonatus
here. The only one with that combination of zigzagging stripe, fancy legs and pale spots on the pronotum, I think. Nice shot, and first AZ image for us, too. Welcome to BugGuide!

Leptoglossus zonatus
Thank you for your help, Hannah. Yes, some of the L. zonatus shots look just right.
