MACROCHERAIA

Lohita grandis is a beautiful big red bug with black marks. She is from Asia and is very popular with insect lovers. In this species, the body and antennae of the male are much longer than those of the female. This bug attacks several economically important plants, including cotton.

Physopeltinae is a subfamily of insects within the family Largidae, or bordered plant bugs.
