I watched this for ages in the garden in Boquete , there were 4 of the same on the one branch and did not seem interested in going anywhere even when I got really close. they were about the size of a thumbnail. I have never seen anything like this before and would love to know what it is, is it poisonous etc.
Signature: Thanks, Carol

Hi Carol,
This colorful individual is an immature Giant Mesquite Bug in the genus
Thasus.  Not only is it not poisonous, it is actually edible.
