cotton stainer2

About 15mm long, on big, thus-far "un-speciefied" Plectranthus. Judging from its jizz - it scuttled-off fast behind the blooms when I tried to get a head-shot - it's no look-alike Cotton-Stainer Assassin, but the real thing.

Location: 3 Marion Ave, Scottburgh

Sigh

My "kingdom's" still intact I see, Riaan - even if I haven't a clue of the real names of my "subjects" ...

Dictionary

I have an extremely poor relationship with the Dictionary. I did believe this Ob was identical to that portrayed in PGW2004, 128.6 as indicated. The Dictionary however would have none of D. nigrofasciatus, hence the confusion.

Thank you, dhjacobs for the helpful ID Notes. I have changed my agreement accordingly.
