Plant Bug
"black grass bug"
  Irbisia brachycera

Plant bug with red legs on Antelope Island, Davis County, Utah.   Plant bugs, strangely
enough, eat plants and are not ashamed to admit it!  This little black bug can be quite
destructive and you can read about it and other "black grass bugs" at this Colorado State
Extension site
