|Ebony Bug on goldenrod|
For some reason not at all obvious to me, Ebony Bugs used to be called Negro Bugs (and still are in most texts). I've been trying to decide how I would feel if there were a family of pale bugs with red noses that were called 'Caucasian Bugs'. I've decided it would be strange, but people are strange and I'd probably just scratch my head and go about my business. But then, I do like bugs and not everyone feels that way.
