Eastern Leaf-footed Bug - Leptoglossus phyllopus

Eastern Leaf-footed Bug - Leptoglossus phyllopus
Mission, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA
December 14, 2012
This photo was taken today at the National Butterfly Center in Mission. I think is Leptoglossus phyllopus but I am not sure if they are found in our area. It also has a mite of some sort on it.
