Caption: An unidentified scale insect feeding on the leaf of a poinsettia, Euphorbia pulcherina. Scale insects are atypical insects in that mature females have no wings and are often legless. The males are winged but are so small that they usually escape notice. Adult males have no proboscis and so cannot feed.
