Shield/Stink Bug

Mattiphus reflexus


A very colourful and attractive Shield/Stink Bug, its body is quite reflective of lights. They are known as Shield Bugs as they emit a foul smell, which you are likely to smell when you get close to them, meaning sometimes, you smelled them first before seeing them. Pic#3 shows the underside of this Shield/Stink Bug with a metallic look.
