Thanks Ashish. I have already checked coreus marginatus (dock bug).
It's very similar except for the leaf like structure on the antennae of the one we have here.

Hi Alex. It looks similar to brown marmorated but it has long antennae with leaf like structures in the middle. I am close to figuring it out but have not found an exact match. If I am not wrong it should belong to the family Coreidae. (See results for coreus marginatus). Thanks.

take a look at this ( ) could that be the 2 different genders. yours and this one, and if you think so, then you will also have your id. same antenna-pieces (4) and somewhat the same patterns.

Weird or what! Looks like something that someone had made up from spare bits and pieces laying around the garden. Lovely set of photos, great captures.

The head looks different. And the body is like a wheel bug. No?

Thanks. It looks like a wheel bug from the back. The face is unusual though. Let's wait for the ID. :)
