Their natural habitat are often fields. This one was found in Santa Catarina, Benedito Novo in Brazil in an area with unadulterated vegetation, resting on a leaf.
Measured approximately 3cm in body length, but requires confirmation.
Leptoglossus dilaticollis is a big leaf-footed bug in the order Hemiptera, suborder Heteroptera, infraorder Pentatomomorpha, superfamily Coreoidea, family Coreidae, subfamily Coreinae and tribe Anisoscelini.
Like other members of the family Coreidae, Leptoglossus dilaticollis possess leaflike dilations on the hind tibiae. Their large "shoulders" are another remarkable trait. These bugs are one of the few that are known to feed on Magnoliidae, a primitive group of plants. More specifically, they were documented feeding on Michelia champaca ("champak"), but are also known to feed on Theobroma cacao ("cocoa"). Michelia champaca is not native to Brazil, so it is expected that Leptoglossus dilaticollis can also feed on other Magnoliidae.
They are distributed in Brazil, Panama and Mexico according to the source I provided.
