Frequent Visits from "CloudflareDiagnostics"

The last few days I’ve been getting visits from some bot that seems to be trying to pass itself off as a CloudflareDiagnostics bot, but it doesn’t seem like a real Cloudflare bot. Can anyone else confirm or deny if it is?

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_13_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/67.0.3396.99 Safari/537.36 CloudflareDiagnostics/1.0

IP Address: 35.205.199.49

ASN: AS15169 GOOGLE - Google LLC

Country: Unknown states, other entities or organizations

Like I said, it seems to be someone trying to fake a Cloudflare bot, but I can’t completely discount the possibility of it being a Cloudflare bot that they have running on a 3rd party network. Especially since it keeps coming back at about the same time each day, multiple days in a row. Although the bot is not marked as a known bot via cf.client.bot, so I just further assume it’s a fake.

Thanks.

Are you able to check whether there’s a CF-Worker header? Workers can make requests from Google IPs under some circumstances.
