A red morph of adult Mecidea minor Ruckes (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) is reported from New Mexico. Coloration in this morph varies from red to pink and is confined to specific areas of the body, primarily the hemelytra and pronotum. Adults are normally straw-colored. Both morphs were found throughout most of the year, but the percentage of each collected between August and December was remarkably different (red morph, 91.9%; straw-colored morph, 62.4%).
