Diactor Bilineatus Percevejo d Maracujá:
Bug DIACTOR BILINEATUS the insect is the Diactor bilineatus, says the researcher of the Biological Institute of São Paulo, Sergio IDE It explains that it is about a species of chinch-bug popularly known as chinch-bug-do-maracujá. The adults reach up to 20 millimeters of length, are of green-dark coloration, with three orange lines that go of the head until escutelo. The posterior legs present an expansion in the tibia in leaf form of dark coloration and with orange points. The eggs are placed in the inferior face of leves, being that each position is composed in the maximum of ten eggs and the incubation period is of 15 days. The nymphs (young forms), say the researcher, suck the seiva of the aerial part of the plants during a period of 45 days and before if transforming into adults the nymphs they pass for urging. The longevity of the adult is of 30 days, of form that the complete cycle of the species they live approximately two months, depending on the climatic conditions. The nymphs of this species suck the seiva of the floral buttons and new fruits, and the adults also attack leves, branches and fruits of any age. The floral buttons and attacked new fruits generally fall and the greaters become wrinkled. The control can be made with the manual removal of eggs, nymphs and adults. Use of gloves sends regards to it to remove them.

Ciao Linaldo,
questa è davvero una meraviglia della natura!
Incredibili non solo i colori, ma anche la forma delle tibie posteriori, allargate ad imitare una foglia.
Complimenti per l'ottima messa a fuoco sul capo e sul torace, dai magnifici riflessi dorati.
