Dear Mary,
We are happy you are satisfied with our site and that you are interested in reading Daniel’s book, The Curious World of Bugs, however your second comment has us confused.  We are not certain what you mean by a “Peacock Bug” that is on your red bud tree since you did not include an image.

I couldn’t get a picture of the little peacock bug but found it on your site. Very tiny with wings that close over the back but not flat they stand up! Soo cute but no pic. I’ll look again and send pic when I can. Love your site!

Ed. Note:  We have Peacock Moths, Peacock Butterflies and a Peacock Fly on our site, but no Peacock Bugs.

I think it’s a peacock fly not bug not sure how to get you a pic. I’m new at this internet stuff. Thanks again!

Thanks Mary,
We do have a Peacock Fly from Germany, and since it is listed on BugGuide, it is a North American species that also has been introduced to Europe.
