Photo take at my door entrance on an Devil´s ivy plant This are the nymphs of some sting bugs / Loxa viridis. Very interesting formation like a flower after first shot they don´t like it so star to move away two seconds latter they come back to the same formation.The name stink bug derives from their tendency to eject a foul smelling glandular substance secreted from pores in the thorax when disturbed; in some species the liquid contains cyanide compounds with a rancid almond scent. This is a form of antipredator adaptation.
Found from Florida all the Caribbean sea to Argentina.
