Cotton Stainer

Dysdercus suturellus


Red with white stripes, black wings. Black legs and geniculate or elbowed antennae.


Picture was taken in some light mangroves, subtropic florida.


I can't find any information about this little guy I saw today in the mangroves north of the everglades. Anyone able to give me an idea of what this guy is? Thanks Tom15!

Thanks António, My wife suggested I look at this site. I can see myself getting addicted. I have just purchased a new camera (I didn't have it when I saw this beetle).

I love your fungi pictures!
