Error: The difference between expected result and actual result is error 
Bug: If that error comes at development stage before production then it is bug. 
Defect: If that error comes after production then we say it is defect.

Beyond to the requirement anything can be considered as Bug.

There are 4 types of Bugs, Defects, errors, mismatch and variants.

Bugs are categorized to Low priority, high priority and medium priority.

According to me , bug means a logical mistake from tester point of view .

Logical bug includes Systactical and Symantical which can find by using code review method genrally done by developers

secondly Bug can also be defiend as " Application is not working as per functioanlity and as per SRS "

correct me if i am wrong.

Bug: A fault in a program which causes the program to perform in an unintended or unanticipated manner.

Fault: An incorrect step, process, or data definition in a computer program which causes the program to perform in an unintended or unanticipated manner.

Defect: Mismatch between the requirements.

For me bug and defect are same as both pointing to one mistake/failure/fault
in the application code that prevents it from behaving as intended. In other
words, While executing the application, if the application is deviating with
respect to expected values then it is called as defect.

Congratulations! You just won a copyright on the new term "test bug"
There is no bug such as a test and dev bug.

Bug is any behavior that deviates from the requirement. Requirements are the so called "expected" result in test cases.
