Just discovered this site; very awesome. Here’s a picture of some beetles on a Horsetail Milkweed (Asclepias subverticillata). This was in Socorro County, New Mexico, on September 16th. Just wondering what they were…
These are not beetles. They are Bordered Plant Bug nymphs in the genus Largus based on this photo posted to BugGuide. We were not aware that Bordered Plant Bugs fed on milkweed.
