Citrus Stink Bug

Rhynchocoris longirostris Stål

Description:

http://www.ndsu.nodak.edu/ndsu/rider/Pen...

Notes:

This shield bug was found on a citrus plant commonly called calamansi (Citrofortunella mitis) in the Philippines. Could very well be feeding on the citrus plant because they don't leave. You can find the nymph of this spotting here: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/125...

martin, i was sprayed by the citrus stink bug in my neck when i pick up a few calamansi fruit, 1 week later, my skin turned into black color and until 2 months it remains in my skin a thumb like size. what medicine should i apply to cure the discoloration of my skin.

Yes it is, that's why I cannot find a match with other foreign spottings. Thanks.

Hi Jolly, I've found this page, take a look, it looks like a match to your spottings.

AshishNimkar, sure it is spiked. But the link you gave is for a brown bug with red legs. Obviously it is not the same. Thanks for your effort. I can see that the PN community is really trying to help one another. That's the spirit.

Bayucca and jolly. I agree there are too many differences. The attraction to citrus gave me confidence and Biprorolus bibax had some variation, but I now agree that this insect is different.

Jolly and I had obviously the same thoughts. Any IDeas?? I am pretty confident with Pentatomidae and not Tesseratomidae, but you never know...

That's the third time I checked this one, no clue. I also checked for Biprorolus bibax, but I am not really happy with this one: Too much green, no color markings on the head, thicker antennae. What do you think, Martin??

Hi martinl, the ID suggestion you gave is for a bug in Australia. Furthermore, the color of the legs, antennae and belly does not match. Do you think this is the same as your suggestion?
