Found this iridescent blue bug with lobster like claws when we felled trees in our backyard. I have searched hi and low looking to see what it is, it seems to only have six legs and doesn’t qualify as a spider, looked to see if it was a beetle and still nothing close. Was living in a shaded wooded area of our yard. didn’t kill it, we just left it on its log and put it gently to the side.

    That is it. Thank you. Bizzare looking creature, but very cute.

    This might be a nymph of the leaf-footed bug (Acanthocephala terminalis).
