Florida Predatory Stinkbug ?
Tue, Oct 7, 2008 at 5:44 PM
Hi to all who have helped me,
I was so blown away by this stink bug. I read somewhere that it had a 4 section beak?. Looks like a sectional proboscis of sorts. I could not believe the orange “beak” I had to work to get this photo and that is always fun. It was well worth the “coaxing” to get these shots. I just had to see what the article was about (no photos).
How does this “beak” get back into his “mouthpart” for lack of a better description or does it store underneath? I could not see how he did that I think this is so cool. Maybe you know a stinkbug Dr. you could pass this along to.
Thanks so much for sending your awesome photo of a Florida Predatory Stink Bug, Euthyrhynchus floridanus. It is a welcomed addition to our archive.
