I’ve been visited by these beetles around August. Three years ago, I snapped a photo of them mating. Just the other day, I took a picture of one laying eggs.
Could you tell me more about them?

Mating Bamboo Coreid Bugs

Dear Lee Yew Moon,
These are not beetles.  These look like Leaf Footed Bugs in the family Coreidae to us, but we cannot provide a species name for you.  We did find a very similar looking Leaf Footed Bug from Singapore on AllExperts.

We just received a comment that these are Bamboo Coreid Bugs in the genus Notobitus.

      Thank you so much for your identification. We often request information on plants upon which insects are found, and we should have recognized the bamboo in the provided image. Searching with those key words, we located another member of the genus, Notobitus sexguttatus, in this FlickR posting.
