Stank - Althos obscurator

Stank - Althos obscurator
Dixie Plantation, Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
September 16, 2007
A slender stink bug of some sort

Moved from Squash Bugs.

Not Anasa...
Not willing to say for certain but I suspect this could be Vasquezitocoris. It certainly resembles something in the "Althos" complex, at least.

Just to note...
Vasquezitocoris and Villasitocoris are both western genera.

It looks like Althos obscurator...

opinion of Dr. Harry Brailovsky:
"seems to be an Althos rather than Anasa" (WonGun, you were right! =v=)

i disagree --
that A.o. picture shows stripped conexivia, for one

Not stink bug.
This is a coreid bug, probably one of the "squash bugs" in the genus Anasa, if it was large enough to be mistaken for a pentatomid:-)
