Cotton Stainer

Dear Lynne,
This is not a Beetle, but rather a True Bug.  This is a Cotton Stainer in the genus
Dysdercus, and we believe it is Dysdercus sanguinarius based on this En Advisor Travel site.

Dear Daniel
Many thanks  – that is brilliant and so quick too!
The fact it is not a beetle explains why my attempts to ID it failed miserably!
Best wishes
