Vibrant Blue and Yellow Clown Bug

03rd January 2015

NYMPH CLOWN BUG

These brightly coloured bugs are nymph Clown Bug's (Amorbus robustus)  AKA Eucalyptus Tip Bug's and we found them on new growth of a young Ironbark Eucalptus Tree at Jarowair.  These bugs extract the sap from the eucalyptus trees, and they live in family clusters.  The bugs will change to a dull dark brown colour once they become adults.
