Overview

Comprehensive Description

Phymatidae (Ambush Bugs)
These small to medium-sized insects are stocky, angular, and variably colored, often some combination of yellow and brown. The head is rather large, and the front pair of legs are thick, powerful, and crab-like: designed for grabbing and holding prey, rather than for walking. Ambush bugs frequently lurk near flowers, and are capable of taking prey much larger than themselves. They inject a digestive fluid, and then suck the bodily juices of their victims.
