Look at the picture above and the one below. You may notice a resemblance to some of the insects I’ve talked about in my most recent posts. However, despite their similar appearance these bugs are actually two different types of insects from two very different families. The insect above is an herbivorous leaf-footed bug (Coreidae), while the bug below is a carnivorous assassin bug (Reduviidae). In fact, many leaf-footed bugs and assassin bugs in the field bear a striking resemblance to each other.
