We were in KNP on 19/02/2011, driving on the Pabeni road towards skukuza when this fellow appeared in the car. I only had a few seconds and manage to get two makro shot before it rushed off. THus far no one can tell me what it is.

We needed to first research the location of Kruger National Park, which we now know is in South Africa. This is an immature True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera, but beyond that, we haven’t a clue. Often the immature stages of an insect’s life cycle are not well documented, and many times, especially with regards to insects in remote locations, the immature stages are completely unknown to science. Hopefully we or our readership will have some luck trying to research what species this immature nymph belongs to.
