Bug of the Week: Mystery Insect?

Just for fun, I thought I would throw a mystery insect at you this week.


It is a bit unusual looking, but there are some clues to what it is if you look closely.


Okay, maybe that is too close.

Do you have any ideas what it might be? If you chose to share, be sure to leave your ideas in the comments.

Edit:  The answer is now posted.
