Broad-headed Bug
"Leatherbug"
Subfamily Alydinae


Alydinae leatherbug
This was a bug I knew I'd never seen before. It looked kind of like
an Assassin Bug bug, but the eyes were bigger and I'd never seen one
this color.  Bugguide informed me it was a Broad-headed Bug. It was
 eyeing me warily from a plant in the Uintas in Summit Cou
nty, Utah.
