Jagged Ambush Bug

Phymata fasciata


A creamy white striped ambush bug trying to hide in a bright yellow goldenrod. Phymata americana would have most likely hidden better, being yellow, but beggars can't be choosers!


On a well grown goldenrod on a high slope, in a ditch beside the road. It was dusk in September in Arkansas and the temperature and humidity was high.


This is my first ambush bug find. :D
