Insect Photo: Akahoshikamemushi in Japanese

Here's a Bright Red Bug

 

 

The day this thing crossed my path, I was using a 50-500mm lens.

There were no birds flying nearby at the time so, I crawled around and shot this.

insect, Red Cotton Bug, Dysdercus cingulatus


Red Cotton Bug (Dysdercus cingulatus) is what it is called in English and Latin.

Encyclopedia of Life is one reference, I used.

iNaturalistOrg gives plenty more information and images of these bugs.

For the Japanese audience, try アカホシカメムシ and, learn more.

ISBN4-900668-35-4 (Japanese) was used in making an identification.
