Arthropods can cause variety of cutaneous manifestation including pigmentation. Recently, burrowing bug pigmentation is described in the literature which though is a very common occurrence and goes underreported. Hereby, we report 2 cases of this entity presenting with atypical features to expand the clinical spectrum and to create awareness about this self-limiting condition. We have also added dermoscopic features of this entity to provide new dimension to the diagnosis.
