Harlequin bug (Murgantia histrionica) - Murgantia histrionica

Harlequin bug (Murgantia histrionica) - Murgantia histrionica
Pikes Peak Summit, El Paso County, Colorado, USA
August 25, 2015
Size: ~1.25 cm
I thought this guy looked out of place among the bare rocks at the summit of Pikes Peak, and I guess it was! I was really hoping it was some rare, tundra endemic that could survive at 14,000 feet, but it's just a harlequin bug (Murgantia histrionica), isn't it?!
