Of interest to practically nobody out there but fascinating all the same, and especially for me.
Three species I have never bumped into before all within the space of 48hrs. Have a look at these guys!
No, Argus, you may not say ”Squish”.
This is a Stink Bug. Handle it and you will likely soon understand why. However, apart from this I have been unable to find any more info, even from the boffins on a Bug Site on FB. All the same, striking markings.
If anyone reading has any info …. Pete?
This looks like a Carpenter Bee … But I don’t think it is! Some sort of mimic, from the looks of it, and a rather handsome one at that. Again, no info has been forthcoming from my Facebook pals.
Last but by no means least …
Spotted this little one hanging from a thread between two cabbage leafs!
And a quick posting on an SA spider site hit jackpot.
This is Theridiidae Enoplognatha sp. ( long -jawed theridid).
Three previously un-encountered species. What a treat!
