The mating pair was found among the green fruits of the Leea rubra (Red Leea). This bug also goes by another scientific name, Plautia crossota and it has quite a wide distribution range.

The nymphs below were found on the Centrosema molle (Centro) together with the adult bugs. The nymph differentiates it from another similar-looking bug, Plautia affinis.
