Green Stink Bug - Chinavia hilaris

Green Stink Bug - Chinavia hilaris
Amherst, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA
June 1, 2004
Photographed in a field near my house. It's amazing how the green perfectly matches the leaves.

Moved
Moved from Acrosternum.

 
ID confirmed by D.B. Thomas: A. hilare
*

Likely Acrosternum in northeast?
Slater (1) says that Nezara is found only in the southeast. Acrosternum (hilare, pennsylvanicum) is widespread, and is still more common than Hilare here in North Carolina, apparently. (See listing at North Carolina State University, which has only 37 specimens of Nezara, but over 400 of Acrosternum.)

So that is a likely, I think, unless somebody has better information. I just wrote a guide page for Acrosternum, if you want to put your image there based on presumption.
