We found this brown bug on our balcony in Hong Kong. We’re curious to know its origins, living habits and what it eats. Can you help?

Dear Email Signature,
This is some species of Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae. We will try to get you an exact species name, or perhaps one of our readers will have the time to research this Stink Bug’s taxonomy.
Update: April 3, 2014
Thanks to a comment from a new visitor to our site, Rob, we are confident that this is a Lychee Stink Bug, Tessaratoma papillosa, which is pictured on the Light Creations website. We have numerous images of immature specimens of Lychee Stink Bugs on our site.
