Nice colorful bug, Spider
Hi Bugman,
I took a few pictures of bugs and an a spider in Guatemala. Can you identify them?

Mesquite Bug Solpugid

Hi David,
We got three photos from Arizona on June 21 last year of Thasus neocalifornicus, the Mesquite Bug in the Coreid Bug Family. We haven’t gotten another since. Your colorful bug looks nearly identical to the photos of the Mesquite Bugs we received last June. Insects do not respect international borders, and we believe you have photographed a Mesquite Bug, or a very close relative. Your spider is actually a Solpugid, known as a Sun Spider or Wind Scorpion. They are harmless.
