      There were three couples at first, on Euphorbia, this shot is the approach to the subject. Second the top view with the other two off sight. They are very sensitive to changes in light and movement on the surroundings, so, guess I was lucky, the remaining shots were only on a single mating pair. Thanks so much, Ferdy! really appreciated*

Dicranocephalus is the only genus of the family Stenocephalidae within the bug part of Pentatomomorpha. They are sometimes also called wolfsmilch bugs in German. Some authors argue that the family Stenocephalidae comprises another genus, Psotilnus, and a total of 30 to 36 species.
