Thank you, Bayucca and Wilson….
Pentatomoidea nymph. I am not so sure, if it is really a Pentatomidae. Could also be a Scutelleridae and my closest guess would be Pachycoris sp. and might be the common and extremely (at least the adults!) Pachycoris torridus.But I am not 100% sure, so I would be happy if someone else could take a look at this one as well!http://www.whatsthatbug.com/2014/03/02/s...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Moult....http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/126...https://www.scienceopen.com/document/vid...Adults and nymphs:http://www.flickr.com/photos/26500525@N0...http://www.flickr.com/photos/26500525@N0...Pachycoris klugii from Mexico (but lacking the yellow part):http://escsecblog.files.wordpress.com/20...Some literature about the adults:http://www.scielo.br/pdf/ne/v33n1/19404....http://www.scielo.cl/pdf/rchnat/v85n3/ar...
I love the shoulder pads, does he play rugby?This is a pentatomidae bug nymph but may be hard to identify more closely as the adults often look quite different to their nymphs. I scrolled down your wonderful spottings gallery but found no shield bugs/stink bugs (local) that I think are candidates. You need a local expert.
