Coreidae Anasa

These Squash Bugs are Leaffooted Bugs, although there is no part of the leg that resemble leaves, like this other leaffooted bug.  They resemble
members of the beneficial Assassin Bug family, who would prey on the squash bug if given a chance.  Squash Bugs are garden pests, feeding on
pumpkin and squash.
