Horned Coreid Bug - Cletus sp.

Family Coreidae

This page contains pictures and information about Horned Coreid Bugs that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

We found a few of them actively flying around near the water edge of a lagoon in Karawatha Forest during later summer Feb 2008. The bugs were horned at the shoulder and orange brown in colour.
