Acanthocephala terminalis

6 July 2020

Denton County, Texas

While iNaturalist does not cite a common name for this large leaf-footed bug, a comment on an observation confirmed in BugGuide made by Ross Hill noted that this large bug is commonly called, Spine-headed Bug. See the BugGuide link: https://bugguide.net/node/view/824481

Hill provides a link to one of the two articles referenced for the genus in Bugguide. For additional information on the genus including A. terminalis, see the free online PDF of the following article: J.E. McPherson, et al., “Review of Acanthocephala (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Coreidae) of America north of Mexico with a key to species,” Zootaxa 2835: 30-40 (2011): https://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2011/f/zt02835p040.pdf

Acanthocephala terminalis is found in the eastern half of the United States and southernmost regions of the Canadian provinces therein bordering with the US. The extent of its southwestern range extends to the central and eastern half of Texas.

Chinkapin Oak (Quercus muehlenbergii)

20 June 2020
Avondale Park
Denton, Denton County, Texas

Young tree dating to 5-6 years ago at the park when it and other oak trees of different species were planted next to Cooper Creek by a City of Denton parks crew. When originally planted these were small trees not more than two or three feet tall. Now they are 8-10 feet tall, have grown, and if tended to properly should continue to grow into maturity providing shade, acorns for the Fox Squirrels and other wildlife that feed and depend on such trees for shelter and sustenance, including birds, moths and butterflies, beetles, ants, cicadas, etc. And mature trees take out or process greater relative amounts of carbon from the atmosphere, generating oxygen in return.
