    The flattened and expanded legs, as well as the two dots on the abdomen, place this in Coreidae rather than Reduviidae. More coreid news for you Rose - I just found an aggregation of juvenile and adults of the undescribed Mictis together, confirming that they are the same species. Given how widely distributed it is, I'm surprised it apparently does not have a name!
