Gabriel from Argentina with some weird bugs
Hi! I love this webpage! Lets see if you can help me with this: My parents just came back from their summer vacations and brought me some pictures from their trip. They stood about 10 days in Cordoba, Argentina in a little town called Tanti. My dad first confused this bugs with a sort a flower, but looking with more detail he noticed the flowers came to be nothing but dozens of insects eating the poor plant. Could you please tell me what are them?
Thanks, Gabriel from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
These are immature specimens of some species of Plant Feeding Hemipteran. Hemipterans have sucking mouthparts, and plant feeding species suck the juices from stems, fruits and seeds.
