LONDON, England (AP) -- The experts at London's Natural History Museum pride themselves on being able to classify and display thousands of species -- from birds and mammals to insects, dinosaurs and snakes -- and are confident they can identify most living things on the planet.

I always find modern discoveries of new species quite interesting, especially if it turns out to be one, right there in the middle of London. I'd be interested to see if anyone has any thoughts on this.

I recognize the markings if not the color. We have a bug around here we call the cucumber beetle. It looks almost exactly the same, but the colouring is orange and black, instead of the brown tone that one has.
Hm... unfortunately doing a google search on the bug doesn't bring up the right bug I'm thinking of...

Black and white, but similar.

S'where I got that from.

Edit: Looked at the picture, there are enough differences to set it aside as a separate species, possibly, but I think it's still the same type of bug.
Colors match a roach, actually. But it looks like a squash bug.

Nope.

But I'd say, it is one of two things.

Either it is something that was somehow missed or it 's a new bug, courtesy of the GENE genies at an unknown lab...

It kinda looks like a bug we have around here called a cone nose bug.
Looks just like a little smaller version of one
Oh the cone nose bug is a blood sucker too, leaves a nasty little welt/scab that stays around for a couple of months.
