Camouflaged Ambush Bugs (Phymata) is a, sit and wait, predator that inhabits flower heads and preys on nectar feeding insects. The blotchy green and brown coloration of this species blends in perfectly with the coloring of the wild Poinsettia upon which it sits. This disruptive coloration makes it difficult for predator or prey to distinguish the outline of the bug's already unusually shaped body, Florida, USA.
