Assassin Bug  (two photos)
Genus Apiomerus

Apiomerus with striped
This funny guy with the red eyes was hunting in
Tooele County, Utah.  The experts at Bugguide
couldn't narrow him
down to species. His striped
legs are
a conundrum.  I've never seen one
like him before.

Assassin Bugs have no prejudices at all. They
will attack anything they think they can handle.
And don't pick them up, because they can
handle your finger.  © Carol Davis 6-11-2018
