Dysdercus cingulatus is a species of true bug in the family Pyrrhocoridae, commonly known as the red cotton stainer. Dysdercus cingulatus grows to a length of 12 to 18 mm. It is mainly red but has a white collar and three black spots. It is closely related and very similar to Dysdercus koenigii but Dysdercus cingulatus is slightly larger and the femora have varying amounts of black while Dysdercus koenigii has completely red femora. I took this picture at Banabitan Biodiversity Park.
