Abstract

Predators use a diverse array of strategies to capture prey. One strategy, aggressive mimicry, occurs when the predator mimics another organism to deceive its prey. We are currently investigating how an assassin bug, Stenolemus bituberus (Heteroptrera, Reduviidae), uses aggressive mimicry to capture its spider prey.
