[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Hemiptera is the largest and by far the most sucessful of the Hemimetabolic insects (having young that look like wingless adults and a sort of metamorphosis that does not involve a pupa). There are at least 80 000 named species and probably many more. about 11 000 named species occur in North America, 5 600 from Australia and 1 600 from the UK. Traditionally they are divided into two groups the Heteroptera and the Homoptera (Sternorrhyncha, and Auchenorrhyncha) based basically on wing stucture but now they are the order is divided into three suborders, Sternorrhyncha, Auchenorrhyncha and Heteroptera with the Auchenorrhyncha now belived to be more closely related to the Heteroptera than the Sternorrhyncha.

Hallo Raimundo
Whenever a new photo appears on the gallery and I have the opportunity to comment on it I always search if I could see any hint op purple in the image. I have added a number of purple subjects to my theme "My purple obsession" but your Hemiptera is the first insect to my collection. I have seen a few of these kind of insects but this is the first one I see with such stunning purple and cerise colours. Really stunning. The green chilli on which you have captured the insect brings out the vibrant colours to a great degree, and adds a special touch to this special photo. I enjoyed looking at it very much, and is greatly appreciated.
Kind regards

Olá Raimundo.
