Red Cotton Bug Dysdercus cingulatus by kadavoor



DescriptionAPI English: Red Cotton Bug is a true bug in Pyrrhocoridae family. They generally mate in April and May. Their diet consists primarily of seeds from mallows. They can be seen in tandem formation when mating which can take from 12 hours up to 7 days. The long period of copulating is probably used by the males as a form of ejaculate-guarding under high competition with other males.
