Hello! I found this cool bug while doing yard work today, but idk what it is. I’m in Queensland, Australia. Do you know what it is?

Hi! Looks like a leaf-footed bug nymph in the Coreidae family, maybe something in the Amorbus genus? Pretty little dude, though! I love and support this bug.

Sorry for the blurriness, he was a very tiny friend! I’ve never seen anything like him, do you know what he could be?

Thank you for your second message telling me it was found in Florida! That’s very important. Looks to be an oak treehopper! They have that silly horn on their head.

A few friends I have seen over the past year

Ohhh these are some very nice friends! My favorite is the enormous dragonfly who is waving in the gif, but I love them all. Actually no my favorite is the snail on the right side. Really marvelous eye stalks. ACTUALLY NO they are all my favorites and I love them. Thank you for sharing!

Found this little guy while going for a walk. I think he’s dead. But still adorable. Is it a weevil?

Yes, it’s a weevil! RIP, weevil. I can’t say which exact species without knowing where you found it, though. There are a bunch of species that look just like this. Fun find, though! Thanks for submitting!

Crawling around under the tables at work and found this little caccoon. I cant wait to see what hatches out!

I won’t ask why you were crawling around under the tables because that’s a great place to find bugs. You better stay there until it emerges so you don’t miss it! Keep us updated.

i had a 2nd cousin who collected insects of all kinds and had an affinity for butterflies in specific! he discovered two new species of butterflies and named them after himself! he had rooms and rooms of insects of all kinds. sadly he passed away in 2009 so i never got to see his collection.. ill have to contact my relatives to see what the butterflies names are but i thought you might like this little story :-)

Good for him! I am curious which he named after himself. I’m sorry to hear about his passing but hopefully his collection was given/donated to someone who appreciates it.

Maybe some big head ants? I've always been really fond of those hard workers

I’d love to post some! But I just looked and there are no really good pics that I can legally share. :(

What bug is this man? He is very handsome and I wish to know his name. Found in Memphis, Tennessee. IMG_1274.JPG

Hi! You’d need to use the submit form and I don’t think you can do that anonymously. If you don’t want your url posted,  you can always send me the photos and I can just not post them, or I can post them myself without your url attached in any way. :)

I realize these arent the best but i found this girl coming in a plant shipment from florida. I was wondering if you knew what she was!

So it’s pretty hard to tell based on these photos BUT…it looks like she’s got some weird pointy bits on her abdomen? And the long egg sac…makes me think she’s from the family Uloboridae, the hackled orbweavers. I’d need clearer photos to say for sure. But I love her! Thank you for sharing Juniper.

Had some great spider friends in my apartment almost this whole year in uni but had to relocate them and clean away their webs for my friend with a huge fear of spiders when she came to visit 😩 Miss them already!

Aww sad. Goodbye dear spider friends. Maybe you can make some new ones soon!

A nice friend hanging in the bath ☺️ I moved him so he wouldn’t get hurt.

I think it’s a hobo spider, but I couldn’t get a clear picture before he ran off to check.

Looks more like Tegenaria domestica to me! Which, if I remember correctly, is much more common where you live. :)

Might I suggest some vinegaroon (whiptail scorpion) pics? They're some of my favorites :)

I have a whip scorpion tag for those both with and without tails! But yes I can post some more. :)
