Ambrosia Leaf Beetle (Zygogramma tortuosa) falls victim to the Common Assassin Bug – (Pristhesancus plagipennis) The BUG (assassin Bug, Pristhesancus plagipennis) (a voracious predator) has actually sneaked up to the Ambrosia Leaf Beetle (Zygogramma tortuosa) stabbed it in the guts with its powerful (and painful) proboscis and then, by injecting lethal saliva into its victim its liquefying the beetles innards and slurping it up through its straw like mouth parts!
