Mating pair of Leptoglossus fulvicornis
climbing down the stem of a lotus leaf. Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Washington, DC, USA. 21 August 2010. The white dots on the head of the male are most likely eggs of a tachinid fly in the subfamily Phasiinae
. When the larvae hatch they will burrow into the bug and feed on its tissues. Guten Appetit!
