Rhinocoris iracundus - Assassin bug

Phylum: Arthropoda - Arthropods
Superclass: Hexapoda - Hexapods
Class Insecta: - Insects
Subclass: Pterygota
Order: Hemiptera - True Bugs
Family: Reduviidae - Assassin Bugs
Genus & specie: Rhinocoris iracundus
Some wait for victims in daylight, while others hunt a midnight snack. Some may even be stalking YOU! Most prey on other insects, but some species feed on blood.

You can rightly call assassins "true bugs," members of the order Hemiptera. True bugs resemble beetles or roaches at first glance, but a closer look reveals important differences. The front pair of wings is leathery at the base, but membraneous in the outer half. At rest, they cross over the insect's back in an X pattern. These bugs have piercing-sucking mouth parts, too.

Assassin bugs are further segregated into the family Reduviidae (Reh-deu VIE-i-day), with roughly 5,000 species worldwide. Their distinguishing feature is a groove on the insect's "chest," into which the short, stout beak folds when not in use. Tiny ridges run across this channel, and the bug can make a squeaking noise by rasping its beak across those ridges

Fine shot of a bug but this is not P. apterus.
This is a species of RHINOCORIS, known as assasin bugs, probably Rhinocoris iracundus.
Nice sharp macro wirth good contrasting green BG and fine lighting.
