Bronze orange stink bug Australia
Yesterday we (carefully gloved) were picking the stink bugs (Musgraveia sulciventris)* off the citrus, when I found this strange creature. After it had posed patiently for my camera for some minutes without moving, I realised it was not alive. Eventually the penny dropped – it was a stink bug moult! I’ve included the adult for your interest: a much loathed creature, but beautiful up close. *We don’t kill them, but, as they are natives, release them in the bush. Best wishes,
Thanks for sending us your photos of an Australian Stink Bug and its cast off skin.
