Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
These insects are medium-sized, oval-shaped, with overlapping wings. They are pale brown or grey, red and black, or other colors. The antennae are rather long and four-segmented. Scentless Plant Bugs feed on the juices of wildflowers, grasses, and some trees. Unlike some of the other families of True Bugs, they do not emit a fluid with an unpleasant scent when disturbed. Sometimes they seek nectar from flowers, but they are not common visitors.
