Found this little guy crawl on our friends patio. Very colorful and reminds me of a stink bugs that we use to have in the US. Any idea what it is?
Though most North American individuals have three distinct spots on the wings, we are relatively certain that your insect is a Florida Predatory Stink Bug, Euthyrhunchus floridanus. This individual pictured on BugGuide has markings very similar to your individual.
Hi Daniel! Thanks so much for the identification! I though it looked like some type of stink bug because of the shield shape to the body. But this one is so much more beautiful than the plain brown ones we use to get in Indiana. Thank you again and have a great day!
We never thanked you for providing both a dorsal and a ventral view.
