Red-shouldered Bug

Jadera haematoloma


Adults are flattened, about 1/2-inch long and 1/3-inch wide, brownish-gray to black bugs with characteristic red eyes, back (pronotum) and wing markings. The segment behind the head (pronotum) has three red lines running lengthwise. Immatures or nymphs are red and develop black markings and wing pads as they grow. Another Rhopalid in the genus Niesthrea occurs on hibiscus in the landscape.
