Most of the
Leaffooted bugs I find are the reddish brown Chondrocera laticornis Leaffooted bugs
with curvy antenna and no white markings, but once in a
while I find a dark brown with a white stripe across the middle Leptoglossus phyllopus
Leaffooted bug like this one perched on pepper vine.
Leaffooted bugs fly, and they tend to do so when I get near them. These
haven't done much of interest in my view.
I found another Leaffooted bug that has white zig-zags like
, but a single splotch where that
dots. It was on a Fiddlewood bush. At the time I was chasing
, so I didn't pay much attention
to the other bugs
. Now I wish I had, because
in my pictures I see one bug with the white zig-zag, and another without
it, but I never got very clear pictures of the one without. Oh well,
here it is in the foreground, a bit fuzzy because I focused on the
striped Leaffooted bug behind it.
