  • Reduviasporonites

    Reduviasporonites or Tympanicysta are palynomorphs — microfossils which appear to be fungal or algal cells or spores. They were first described from specimens found in the Flowerpot Formation by L. R. Wilson in 1962. That first paper conjectured that they were a type of Penicillium fungus. A later analysis suggested that they might have been algal. They have been classified as phragmospores, having cell walls in a ladder-like formation.

  • Reduvius personatus

    Reduvius personatus

    Reduvius personatus or the masked hunter is an insect belonging to the assassin bug (Reduviidae) family. The name is because its nymphs camouflage themselves with dust. The masked hunter is a predator of small arthropods, including woodlice, lacewings, earwigs, bed bugs and termites. Masked hunters do not feed on human blood, but can bite humans in self-defense when mishandled. The bite can be extremely painful, but masked hunters are not known to transmit any diseases and medical attention is rarely needed.

    Reduviidae

    The Reduviidae are a large cosmopolitan family of the order Hemiptera (true bugs). They can be perceived as slightly unusual, but they are very common among the Hemiptera because almost all 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 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.

  • Reduviinae

    Reduviinae

    The Reduviinae are a subfamily of the reduviid assassin bugs. Many members of the subfamily are nocturnal and their lifecycles are generally poorly known. This subfamily is suspected not to be monophyletic.
