It was actually not really a correction, but a friendly clarification ;-)

Thank you both for the correction.

Thanks for your support anyway, Thorsten! No problem, this happen to me all the time, when I open the spotting in the morning and ID it in the afternoon ;-)...
And sometimes I do not even read the intro or other comments, just because I am lazy ;-)

Sorry bayucca - I didn't see your comment. I've been "too late" - therefore I've eliminated my suggestion and comment... You are absolutely right about L. gonagra.

Leptoglossus gonagra, Passionvine Bug.
But you are right... Australis is a synonym of Gonagra :-)!
Personally I would go with Leptoglossus gonagra.
