Stilt bug antenna
click on pictures to see them larger

The antennas of this "bug" have the same distinctive swelling as the legs, and are distinguished from the legs mainly by the knob at the end. They sport a number of small hairs that have fairly equal spacing and are arranged in nearly straight columns. If the antennas were straightened out they would be longer than the body.
