Green with red epaulets - Loxa flavicollis
Beverly Hills, Citrus County, Florida, USA
July 24, 2007
Size: Approx. 20mm long
Seen at the strip mall around 10 PM. At first I thought it might be an odd form of katydid, but the eyes look all wrong for that.

Moved from Loxa.

Moved from Stink Bugs. ID by Balabans seems perfectly reasonable.

Moved from True Bugs.

Reminds us of images in the guide
under Loxa here, but you should wait for a firm ID from one of the Pentatomid experts.
