Leaf-footed Bug? - Leptoglossus phyllopus

Leaf-footed Bug? - Leptoglossus phyllopus
Morrisville, NC, just outside of Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina County, North Carolina, USA
May 27, 2012
Size: body length was ~15-20mm
There were dozens of these bugs getting frisky on the flowers of Yucca filamentosa. All I know about this bug's ID is that it is some kind of leaf-footed bug, perhaps Leptoglossus clypealis? I would like to know the genus and species of this bug if possible. Thanks for any help you can give me regarding this bug's ID.

Moved from ID Request.

Leptoglossus phyllopus
