A true bug, less than an inch long. Predominantly orange, with a black mark behind the thorax and a black patch centre/rear.
Adjacent to a small stream. Altitude 1000m.
Very similar to the cotton bug and probably the same genus dysdercus. But unable to find an accurate ID. Another possibility is the genus Pyrrhocoris, but this appears to be more oval in shape.
