Shield Looking Green Beetle in Colorado
Hi Bugman,
Great Site! I looked through all of the beetle pages and could not find this. I also googled beetles native to Colorado and mostly what I found was the june beetle and potato beetle. I am stumped? I live on the front range of Colorado and found this guy in our backyard near the flower garden. He flew pretty high but for only about 20 feet at a time. Took picture on May 30th around 6 pm. Thanks for the help

This is Say’s Stink Bug, Chlorochroa sayi. Stink Bugs are also called Shield Bugs and they are True Bugs in the family Pentatomidae, not beetles..
