Dear Dinesh ji,

An old post of yours on the Thespesia populnea. The last image has a brilliant red insect on it. Found out that insect happens to be the Cotton Stainerhe or Pyrrhocoridae  which are a cosmopolitan family of pentatomomorphan bugs including about 65 genera and over 400 species.  The Thespesia populnea.is a host plant.


regards,
