Spilostethus macilentus

Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, by nickypegg

Much similar to S. longulus, to the point it was, at first, confused with it by its author, Carl Stål. A Southern African species, differs from longulus by its overall, darker habit. Head mostly black, apically and basally around the eyes, with either a "Y"-shaped red pattern, or but a simple, faint, red patch. Scutellum red apically.
