These red bugs in different sizes and stages of maturity were found running all over the places: in the forest on the road, on the river bank nearby. Many were mating, others carrying, perhaps, babies with them, still others in group formations (so many) of 20s to 30s like this! Length: ranging from 12 - 17mm.
Sal forest nearby a river (Teesta). Dry and hot place.
Out of curiosityI gently dissected the group and examined inside, anticipating something that they may eating. There were none. They were simply pushing in toward the centre and in turn driving others out! I felt they may be simply re-living the environment initially they came from!
