Wikipedia

  1. Reduviidae

    The Reduviidae is a large cosmopolitan family of the order Hemiptera (true bugs). Among the Hemiptera and together with the Nabidae almost all species are terrestrial ambush predators: most other predatory Hemiptera are aquatic. The main examples of nonpredatory Reduviidae are some blood-sucking ectoparasites in the subfamily Triatominae. Though spectacular exceptions are known, most members of the family are fairly easily recognizable; they have a relatively narrow neck, sturdy build, and a formidable curved proboscis (sometimes called a rostrum). Large specimens should be handled with caution, if at all, because they sometimes defend themselves with a very painful stab from the proboscis.

  1. reduviidae

    Reduviidae is a large, cosmopolitan family of predatory insects in the order Hemiptera. They are commonly known as assassin bugs or kissing bugs due to their habits of biting humans, typically in the face region. These bugs are often known for their potential to transmit the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, which causes Chagas disease. They use their long rostrum (or beak) to inject lethal saliva that liquefies the insides of their prey, which are then sucked out. The family includes over 7,000 described species, varying widely in shape and size.
