African Red Spot Assassin Bugs

African Red Spot Assassin Bugs Platymeris laevicollis (or P. rhadamanthus--who knows anymore?) nymphs now available. These are sometimes called red eye assassin bugs, but that name is misleading since the spots on their backs more likely effect warning coloration than imposing stares. These commonly live a couple years in captivity.

Our video below portrays the yellow spot version of this insect, while the available nymphs are of the red spotted species.

These have a VERY painful bite and can supposedly shoot venom out of their rostrum (beaklike mouthpart). I've never seen them do the latter but it should be considered as you decide to buy this insect.

Small 2nd instar nymphs, $9.99 each.
