Plant Bug

Corizus hyoscyami


"Adults are about 9 millimetres (0.35 in) long. The species is a plant feeder. Like all scentless plant bugs, it lacks well-developed scent glands and can be distinguished by numerous veins in the membrane of the hemelytra, characteristic of all members of the Rhopalidae." ~wiki
