I think it's easy to mix them up when they are nymphs. Here's a leaf-footed nymph, I thought it was a funny looking wheeler bug until I noticed the leave-legs. Hilarious!

And probably TMI for most of you but here is what the eggs of the wheeler bug look like. They often lay their eggs in tree branches or on dead wood.
