Can you please identify what species of Assasin bug these guys are. I caught them on one of my Okra plants and they are adorable.

Though it resembles an Assassin Bug and though it is classified in the same order as Assassin Bugs, this Red Cotton Stainer is actually a member of the Red Bug family Pyrrhocoridae. We verified your Red Cotton Stainer’s identity as Dysdercus cingulatus thanks to Project Noah.
