Red cotton bug

Dysdercus cingulatus

Description:

All the markings from the links mentioned by AshishNimkar and Darwinist is there.It was sitting right on this Pest infested plant near a " Hot Spring Pond on my 3 acres of land , about 80 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. Right in my backyard are all the wonders that a spotter would love to watch .

Notes:

Its been raining real heavy these past few days in kuala Lumpur and several other states in Malaysia.Going into these secondary jungle areas is a nightmare and a 4x4 and a lot of tracking in ankle deep mud is normal.Will be camping out here for a few days to spot for more of Gods beautiful creations. Thanks Dave for the actual Id.
