  • see if you can see the mouthparts in the bug catcher - do they have a sucker straw nose, or mandibles like a crab? if straw nose they suck sap (ie bug) if mandibles they chew and rasp (ie beetles).
  • although the picture I've attached is from SA. i've seen bugs like this in Bris though. generally these would be leaf suckers, not fruit stingers. i like annette mcfarlane's fruit moth theory - see the discussion you posted.

    i saw a micky myna chasing a grasshopper on the wing all across the garden today - he got him too. perhaps i'm not totally unfond of them after all...
  • harlequin beetles? do they smell if you squish them?
