Reduviidae (probably)

Reduviidae is a large, cosmopolitan family of predatory insects in the suborder Heteroptera. It includes assassin bugs, wheel bugs and thread-legged bugs. There are about 7000 species altogether, making it one of the largest families in the Hemiptera.

Physical characteristics.

Adult insects often range from 4 to 40 mm. They most commonly have an elongated head with a distinct narrowed neck, long legs, and a prominent, segmented tube for feeding (rostrum).

They can use their rostrum to deliver a painful bite which in some species can be medically significant.
