Hello,
I noticed this vicious little beast whilst camping in France close to the Swiss border. I would love to know what it is. (And what it is eating!)

    This is a species of Rhynocoris (Harpactorinae), pretty sure either R. iracundus or R. rubricus, but I’m not familiar enough with them to say for certain with this frontal view.
