La semana pasada pude ir con el @grupojaragua al Parque Ecológico Humedales de Nigua. Donde aparte de ver mucha flora y fauna de humedales y de playa a solo unos minutos de la ciudad, me encontré con unos de mis artrópodos favoritos las arañas saltarinas. En este caso una Anasaitis locuples, que fue suficientemente generosa como para modelar y dejarme tomar varías fotos.
Jewel Bugs (Scutiphora pedicellata)
Scutelleridae are otherwise known as shield-backed bugs, a reference to the fact that their shield is continuous, not divided. Because bugs in this family are usually brightly colored, they are also known as Jewel bugs. These insects feed on plant juices, and are closely related to stink bugs.
This bugs are in the Shield-backed bug family. Shield-backed bugs are plant suckers. They can be distinguished from other shield bugs by their scutellum completely covered the whole abdomen and wings. This is why sometimes they are miss-recognized as beetle. They are easily distinguished from beetles by having sucking mouthparts and the shield on the back is continuous, not the divided wings cover with separation at the middle.
