Burrowing bug

Pangaeus sp.


Adults are black, roughly 1/4 inch long, and superficially resemble small stink bugs. However, they are more oval and have spines on their leg segments (tibiae). The front wings are clear and membranous (hemelytron) at the tips beyond a black thickened basal part (corium and clavus), and can be seen at the rear end of the body when the wings are held at rest.


I found this insect in the middle of fruit in the supermarket.


Can be a pest of crop production.
