Cotton-stainer bug

Dysdercus nigrofasciatus


A sad, or perhaps bitter face on a bug... App. 15mm. Active and alert, left my hand and flew a few meters away...


Urban area, garden, rhododendron bush.

But my bug does not have the face of Raúl Juliá on its back.

I guess they come in different colours! All of them are interesting Sckel, and your spottings were cool in my eyes!. Augusto, do you have a lot of them in Colombia?

I have two bugs similar to this, but the design on the back is not so cool, it's dark.

I love this bugs. Son maravillosos.
