Black Bug and Pebble

This black bug stayed around long enough for me to take some pictures. I didn't notice at the time, but it seems to be missing part of one antenna. The pebble is embedded in cement walkway.

A true bug in the family Coreidae (leaf-footed bugs). The tropics have some quite bizarre species of this group

> Ted, thanks for the identification. I have some more images of another one of these creatures. I'll post a couple of them.
