Western Conifer Seed Bug

Another record of the Western Conifer Seed Bug (Leptoglossus occidentalis) was received from Bob Rigdon, who photographed it at his home in Uplands last week. This is a distinctive bug that appears to be readily attracted to light at windows!

I found one of these very striking fellows at Rhoose Point this morning.

Very many thanks Adam - I'll add your observation to the database. If you took a digital image it would be useful for the archive?
