bug from neighbor's tomatoes - Leptoglossus

bug from neighbor's tomatoes - Leptoglossus
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA

I suspect that this will not be identifiable to species, but that it is a Leptoglossus similar to this: http://bugguide.net/node/view/4713, although this is a semi-educated guess on my part. I realize that this is an immature, but if there are any other angles/characters that might help ID it, please let me know. And a big "Thanks!" to my neighbor Charlotte for bringing me this specimen.

Leafooted Stinkbug Nymph!
I sure recognize this little guy...I battled them in my garden this Spring. They can really reek havoc on your fruit as nymphs or adults! Here is a link you can look at too - http://insects.tamu.edu/fieldguide/aimg65.html - the picture off to the left is a good match too. This is exactly what mine looked like, at first I thought it was an assassin bug nymph - but the telltale signs are the black bumps on abdomen and the flat portion on the back legs.

Agree with Leptoglossus...
And L. phyllopus would seem to be a possibility based on Hannah's comment here:



To find out for sure, keep an eye on those tomatoes. :)
