I know - just a Stink bug - but it's so pretty

Murgantia ยป Harlequin Bug (Murgantia histrionica)
looks similar to this one, is more black though

The ones in SoCal typically are more black.

Adult, too.
Just stating the obvious that this image is of an adult, not a nymph.

Once again, Eric proves essential.
Well, at least three of us would have missed the point otherwise.

I had a nymph pic first, and decided at the last minute to rather take this one.
