GA seems also rather being a European one.

rdx1312, I agree there is a resemblance, but the terminal antennal segment on Gonocerus acuteangulatus is a lot shorter and shaped differently than the one on this species.

bayucca, I'm not terribly familiar with the Indian species. I'm afraid the best I can do is Subfamily Coreinae. There are 19 tribes in the Coreinae found in the eastern hemisphere. I would need a specimen and a good key to the species to say for sure ID-wise.

Unfortunately I do not have any better suggestion than the family. Jack??

Yes, the markings are wrong for Leptoglossus occidentalis.

Hi bayucca,

Thanks for the suggestion. I also agree with you that Conifer seed bug may not belong to India and your ID seems to match better. Changing it.

I don't think it is a Leptoglossus occidentalis. To my knowledge it is only found in US/Canada and had introduced some parts of Europe. I can't imagine that it is also extending to India. In addition, in my eyes it looks different:
