Aldrin, it is your post. You get to modify it as you need or want to. NO need for "approval" to make those changes. Often there is help ID'ing the species from community members who are not Rangers. Everyone gets to help and offer ideas and comments on everyone's spotting.

Great spot and congratulations on Spotting of the Day.

I was really hesitant doing it.. : ) i thought renaming it still needs approval from a ranger..

That's great. Why not replace Scutelleridae with Chrysocoris stolli in the Scientific name space then, or do you want a ranger to do that? Cheers

Hi! Mr frazier, thanks for the greetings and for helping me identifying this spotting.. i have to agree that this is a Chrysocoris stolli. the bright red orange color on the bottom of this bug might just be the reflection of the plant where it was on. and also i took this picture in the morning when the sun was still bright yellow.

Congratulations on your fine Spotting of the Day, Aldrin! You have correctly identified the family of your spotting as Scutelleridae. However this family includes at least 450 species from around the world, not just this one. I had prieviously suggested "Scutiphora pedicellata" but I think this may indeed be Chrysocoris stolli http://www.flickr.com/photos/anindya-san... . Hopefully the community will join in to help you identify this high profile spotting to species level. :-)
