Green Stinkbug - Arvelius albopunctatus
Tavares, Lake County, Florida, USA
June 14, 2007
Found these today on my "Potato Vine" Solanum crispum. There were about 5 of them on the berries sucking the juices. I saw a matching photo on the guide - but it wasn't identified...

Sharon, what do you think
of Carla's and Machele's ?

 
appear to be the same
I can't tell any differences - all 3 look like the same creature!

 
ok, we'll move them

Arvelius albopunctatus - Tomato Stink Bug
Got a reply from the Entomology & Nematology Dept. at
University of Florida who ID'd this bug as:

Arvelius albopunctatus, the tomato stink bug.  It is a plant-feeder, with hosts including tomato, potato, sweet potato, green beans, sunflower, pepper, eggplant, okra, and soybean.
