I saw this bug on my windshield in Sunnyvale, CA, yesterday and was wondering what it was. I’ve seen them before and thought they might be some variety of stinkbug. I think they’re fairly common around there.
This is indeed a Stink Bug. More specifically, it is a Rough Stink Bug in the genus Brochymena. This is a beneficial species that is predatory and it feeds mainly on caterpillars. See BugGuide for additional information.
