Can you tell me what these are? I don't think I've ever seen them before.

These are ambush bug nymphs. Once considered a separate family (Phymatidae), they now are included in the assassin bug family (Reduviidae).

Ambush bugs...! I'd never heard of them or seen them before. Good grief.

Thanks, Flapdoodle.
