Pyrrhocoris apterus - male - female

Pyrrhocoris apterus - Male Female
South Jordan, Salt Lake County, Utah, USA
July 24, 2017
I don't need an ID but just wanted to post this picture for the files. They are alive and well in Salt Lake County still. I have had lots of them in my yard and this year I found them feeding on and mating on the seed pods of one of my non native mallow plants as shown in this picture. I also find the copulating parts to look different than what I have seen in the past.
