Moved from Dusky Stink Bug.

Euschistus variolarius

opinion of D.B. Thomas: "can't tell"
see the info page for freshly posted ID hints; my ID was based on McPherson 1982 key(1) that implies that the no black color on the edge of connexivia may only mean variolarius. =v=

Moved from Stink Bugs.

Looks like genus Apateticus or similar.

Hi Stephen, a little belated, but thanks for helping with the ID. It was one of our first submissions, and the size estimate could easily be wrong. Wish there were some more pics of this genus on line to compare. Sandy&Lloyd

Relatively small for Apateticus, isn't it? I wouldn't hazard a guess personally, though I wish David Ryder would visit more frequently to help us out with pentatomids.

Thanks to both Stephen and Er
Thanks to both Stephen and Eric for helping with this ID.

This is most likely E. tristigmus. Outstanding image.

E. tristigmus
