Name:   Western conenose / kissing bug (Triatoma protracta)
Copyright:   Copyright 2006 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Western conenose or kissing bug (Triatoma protracta). Triatoma protracta (also know as the Mexican bedbug) is an assassin bug (family Reduviidae). The nocturnal insect is about 2 cm long, brown-black color and found in forests. They are common in the southwestern USA and in South America. The blood sucking insect feeds on mammalian blood at night (including humans) and can cause severe dermatological wounds. The feeding process can cause anaphylactic shock or even Chagas disease since the insect is the vector for trypanosomes.

Type: SEM
