Stink Bug - Thyanta pallidovirens

Stink Bug - Thyanta pallidovirens
Marin County, California, USA
August 28, 2009
Size: 1.2 cm
Looks like the Green Stink Bug, but its wings are spotted and the leading edges of the thorax are concave.

Thyanta pallidovirens (Stål) -- D. B. Thomas det.
Moved from Thyanta.

Moved from ID Request.

Re: Stink Bug
The shape matches that of the Southern Green Stink Bug, but none of the ones on here have the speckled wings that I can tell.

While you wait
for a more expert opinion, try looking at Thyanta--maybe the Red-shouldered Stink Bug. Thyanta are often speckled like that.

Thyanta, seconded

Re: While you wait
Thanks! That appears to be a closer match. I suspect the brown one I posted is also in that genus, as it also has the speckled wings.
