Seen in Costa Rica near Arenal Volcano.
Great! I'll take a look.
I posted a few on my profile. I just got a shot of one today which was all dark and much larger than this one along with some eggs which may be from the same species. I will post later.
You are definitely correct... just not sure of the exact species. Good call, as I had no idea! I wish I had taken more photos of it.
I think this is a cotton stainer bug.
Thanks! I'd definitely love to see some pics of some more - the colors on the one I got are beautiful.
there are a plethora of these right now here in Guanacaste. It seems that there might be aobut 6 or 7 species in total plus various nymphs. Nice spotting Chris!
Thanks! I love the colors also. The amount of diversity in the tropics is amazing!
Cool assassin bug. What great colors!
