By the teeth on the angular pronotum
and shallow scalloping on the hind tibiae, I would say this is Leptoglossus fulvicornis - a new species for the guide. I've been wondering if we had some images of this one - it's very similar to L. oppositus, but this image definitely shows the teeth which are distinctive to this species. I'll move these to the correct page.
