Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Small Milkweed Bug
Class:Insecta Order:Hemiptera Family:Lygaeidae Genus:Lygaeus


This orange and black bug could easily be confused with a Boxelder Bug or Large Milkweed Bug. I use the black heart shape on its back as a guide.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
