Scientific name: Gelastocoris sp.
(Hemiptera: Gelastocoridae)

Facts: Toad bugs are very easily overlooked. They are brownish and about 1/2 inch long. They hop much like toads and are typically found along rocky shores of lakes or ponds. Careful examination will reveal that toad bugs have six legs, showing that they are indeed insects and not toads after all.
