Hi there,
I am working in Kakanda, DRC and I found this bug outside in our camp… I thought it was dead but it is still moving slightly. It is approximately 30 mm long and 20 mm wide.
I hope you can help me to identify it. I’m really interested to know what it is.

Immature Stink Bug

Hi Linda,
We are nearly certain that this is a Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae, but it might be a closely related Shield Bug or other member of the superfamily Pentatomoidea.  It is an immature specimen as evidenced by the lack of wings.

Thanks for submitting three different angles.  This should help in the eventual species identification.
