Coreidae, Coreinae, Anisoscelini, Anisoscelis sp., not really sure about the species. Looks like being Anisoscelins affinis, but I am not sure if all the IDs we find are really trustable or correct.
Definitely the same one like this, but without a species ID, only genus.
Anisoscelis gradadius shoud have a darker band on the pronotum, so yours is probably not that one:
Correct ID??
IDed as A. affinis, but I am sceptic, I think it is A. gradadius/A. gradiada:
Note the huge "flags" in A. affinis, compared to A. gradadia:
In my eyes correct ID (OK it's mine ;-)...):
Certainly correct IDed as A. affinis, not so strong markings like yours, but quite a fine match?
ID correct?:
ID probably correct:
IDs correct?
ID probably correct, note again the huge flags:
Questionable ID:
