nice shots! a newcomer, relatively speaking
may or may not be recorded in MT yet

Moved from ID Request.

 
Thanks!
I'll keep the specimen, just in case.

 
good idea
where i come from, this bug is rather uncommon and well-behaved, but that's usually the case with invasive species in their native lands
