Thread-legged Assasin Bug
August 8, 2008
Thanks to the observant Bugguide folks for spotting this strange creature! It was hanging around in a spiderweb up in a doorframe at the UT Field Station. It had obviously been there quite awhile since its molted exoskeleton can be seen in the upper right corner of the photo. Perhaps it eats the spider's prey. I had to stand on a concrete block to get close enough to get this photo!
