GROUND BUG Spilostethus pandurus

 

         Spilostethus pandurus is one of several similar looking red and black ground bugs found in Europe. This combination of colours (although technically black is an absence of colour) usually indicates distastefulness to predators and the patterning enables these insects to be separated to species.
