Spiky Nymph - Halyomorpha halys

Spiky Nymph - Halyomorpha halys
Alexandria, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
June 25, 2010
Size: btwn .25 - .5"
Found two of these on flax plants that sprouted under my birdfeeder. I haven't seen nymphs like this quite so spiky before. I've got them captive to see what they become - they've been through one molt since this - I need to take another shot.

Third instar, I believe. They did in fact become Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs.

Thanks guys!
Definitely more interesting as nymphs...

It looks like we have some similar
filed under Brown Marmorated. If we decide these are Brochymena, we should check on these

 
yes, of course -- H.h.!
the Balabans are 100% right

 
Ah, so mundane!
I'll keep an eye on them and see if that's what they turn into. Those are DEFINITELY in my area though... On buildings, in my house, all winter... Just found another inside the other day!

perfect photo! must be Brochymena, but we must be careful
i'll ask around

 
Thanks!
They have such great colors - I didn't notice the green till I looked at the photos.
