Genus change
This species has recently been moved out of Podisus. Gapon (2010) described the genus Conquistator for this species. So, this should now be known as Conquistator mucronatus.

Moved
Thanks for the help!!



Moved from ID Request.

Ah! much better Yurika
No wonder we couldn't do anything to make it match. Thanks for the info.

 
I just read
Rice Stink Bug Info page and it says "Sometimes predatory on caterpillars"!!

Or maybe...
Podisus mucronatus?



Rice Stink Bug is not predatory ;)

The pattern is a little different,
but it must be close
