3cm from top to bottom

It wasn’t easy getting this insect to pause long enough to snap, but it was quite prepared to wait while I measured it.

3cm or about 1 1/4 inches

It was not alone I discovered, as I climbed in the garden bed. Several of them appear to like banana capsicum.

A black and shiny bug for Becky’s squares. And to be precise, it was 3cm from mandible to metasoma.
