July 6, 2016: Red Milkweed Beetle

Red Milkweed Beetle (Tetraopes tetrophthalmus) are host specific to milkweeds, especially the Common Milkweed.  Both the genus and species name mean "four eyes" and refer to the way the socket of the antenna divides each compound eye in two. 7/4/16 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
