Stinkbug Nymphs

Pentatomidae

Description:

Stinkbug mothers lay their eggs in a close bundle, they guard it by covering them with their body, usually for the first few days. Sometimes they stay even after the nymphs hatch!. Here, we see 19 already-hatched nymphs and four still in their eggs. The nymphs will stay around for some time after they've all hatched, after which each will part their ways.

Habitat:

Tropical Jungle/Grassland

Notes:

This was spotted in a small group of trees in the middle of a heavily-deforestated area for agriculture. However, this grassland is still connected to very rich jungles nearby.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
