Seemingly out of nowhere a long insect creature appeared (jumped?) on my PC screen and startled me. Seems to have 6 legs and antennae. Moves slowly, but apparently has a very strong grip. Its size is about 2.5cm (1") The bug was found in the capital city of Bulgaria, EU.

An app identified it as a house cricket and then a box bug, but while it does look like that I couldn't match a picture that looks identical.

Looks something between an adult gonocerus acuteangulatus and rhombic leatherbug but it has longer and thinner body. Most likely in the family Coreidae.

What is it? Long legged insect

  • It is still alive in the glass I am keeping it in. The only greenies I had touched are iceberg and arugula that I was eating so I've thrown a leaf of both in there, hoping that it'll keep it alive for longer. Poor thing is probably starving too.

Nagusta Goedelii

Recently, I nearly recovered from Indianmeal moth infestation and it is possible that goedelii fed on them.
