Flag-footed Bug
Anisocelis flavalineata


Bocas del Toro, Panama




This amazingly colorful bug has warning colors and is best avoided because it is poisonous. Here an adult is sitting on a spectacular maracuya flower. When they are young, the bugs feed on the poisonous sap of the maracuya plant, which renders them poisonous.
