Red and Black Bug

Brachytes bicolor Westwood

I am here after a long gap with a ‘friend from my garden’.

I spotted it (Brachytes bicolor Westwood) on my Asparagus plant stem. This is a creeper and has small thorns; the plant grows wild.

There was a colony of these pretty bugs on Asparagus stems, at the base slightly above the ground. Clicked a few shots of the bugs that were moving away from the colony. Within a month’s time they started disappearing. Waiting for the next season to meet them  🙂

I understand that the species is mostly reported from India
