could you please delete your images from your comment here and instead post them to ID Request where everyone will get to see them? Thanks,

Was moved after checking . . .
pictures from Europe, that showed nymphs of different age on the same plant. This is an early stage, and nymphs successively turn green, and loose white spotting.

Could you provide a link to those images?
If so, it would be a useful addition to the guide page.

The picture from a German site I liked most cannot be linked directly. But I add one from Brasil for N.viridula,
and one from a spanish site (dont know whether photographed in Spain, but have seen similar from the mediterranean region), for the related species, or subspecies, Nezara antennata

Thanks, Boris

Moved from Stink Bugs.

found on pole beans.

Found these on pole beans also
On August 15, 2009 I found these on my pole beans just like Lynette. These were in Burbank, CA which is in the San Fernando Valley right next to L.A. I'm not an entomologist, but mine sure look like Lynette's Nezara viridula.
