RED AND WHITE BEETLE THERE WERE TWO OF THEM EXACTLY THE SAME - Thasus neocalifornicus

RED AND WHITE BEETLE THERE WERE TWO OF THEM EXACTLY THE SAME - Thasus neocalifornicus
TUCSON, PIMA County, Arizona, USA
June 14, 2006
Size: 1"
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS BEETLE IS AND CANNOT FIND IT ON THE INTERNET.

With that color and those flattened
segments on the antennae, we would say Thasus acutangulus - Giant Mesquite Bug. Images can be found in the guide here.

Not a beetle
Looks like a true bug nymph.

 
TYPE OF STINK BUG

Not a Stink Bug
This colorful little critter isn't a Stink Bug (Pentatomidae). It looks like Miridae or something similar.
