Leaf cutter?? - Leptoglossus phyllopus

Leaf cutter?? - Leptoglossus phyllopus
MYRTLE BEACH, Horry County, South Carolina, USA
July 1, 2012
Size: 1" - 1 1/2"
Is this a leaf cutter?

Moved from ID Request.

I would have to go with...
...Leptoglossus phyllopus based on what I can see of the line across the back. It appears to be straight rather than 'zig-zagged'.

Quite a wingspan...
...for L. phyllopus. :)

I meant:

Thanks Ken :)

Please crop all images to "just the bug" before posting.

Also, remove the redundant data from the location feilds, "MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA / USA, Horry County, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina / USA County, South Carolina, USA" makes no sense. City in the city field, county in the county field, state in the state field... just like any normal form.

Also, a proper date would help, not "December 31, 1969" - the date the system inserts when someone puts an invalid date in the field.

I didn't realize it was to much. I'm fairly new here, guess I don't know all the do's and don'ts.

Getting closer
Note the instructions for the county field... "Do not include the word 'County' or 'Parish' here as the system will provide that as needed." , so the county should be "Horry" not "Horry County, South Carolina / USA" - I fixed it for you.

You can fix it
Crop your image, then click 'edit" and try again with the new image and data.

Family Coreidae - Leaf-footed Bugs
the experts can probably give you a name
