Stenopoda spinulosa, brachypterous adult female

If anyone knows what those black larvae are, I'm very curious!! Leaf beetles?

  1. Hi Franny, the bug is a brachypterous adult female (have a closer look at the veined wings) - nice find!
    The black cases may well be carried around by the larva of leaf beetles - some Cryptocephalinae I'd say.
    See here for example for comparison: https://bugguide.net/node/view/860114

    1. Thank you very much for the information and correction! I wasn't familiar with the brachypterous condition. I'll be on the lookout from now on. Cheers! Posted 26 days ago
