Green Stink Bug - Nezara viridula

Green Stink Bug - Nezara viridula
Fort Bragg, Cumberland County, North Carolina, USA
July 20, 2005
Found on the same pole bean plant as that I found earlier in the year.

Sometimes wishes come true!
Please compare my comment on genus page for reasons why these pics can be moved now.

Moved

According to the University of Arkansas
red-banded antennae = Nezara, black-banded = Acrosternum, so this should be Nezara. I'm putting a link to the pdf. document on the two relevant pages.

 
Thanks
for the help!

 
I'm wish we could get all these either/or ones moved
so we can delete this confusing section and keep the two species separate. It's not always easy to tell the color of the antennae, but I'm starting to see that Acrosternum has a more hunched-up look that Nezara, perhaps - or am I imagining that after looking at too many images?
