Rhynocoris annulatus looking for prey

Rhynocoris (historically often misspelled as "Rhinocoris"[1]) is a genus of assassin bug, family (Reduviidae), in the subfamily Harpactorinae.

Species of this genus are noted for providing parental care of offspring. Parental care is unusual in subsocial insects, having only evolved six times in the Heteroptera. R. tristis for example, is well known for guarding egg masses.[2]

Life history

Rhynocoris kumarii is known to prey upon the larvae of Euproctis fraterna (Moore).[3]
