How you want your letter signed:  Loan

Stink Bug

Dear Loan,
Are you certain the hatchlings are the same species as the adult?  The adult is not Coreidae, but rather Stink Bug family Pentatomidae, and it looks exactly like the individual identified on this You Tube video as “Stinkbug species – similar to
Pentatoma rufipes or Euschistus heros” however the striped legs found on your indivdiual and the one in the You Tube video are different from the two species mentioned.  The former is a European species with red legs based on this Nature Spot posting, and the latter has brown legs based on the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee site, so we are confident that neither names species is correct. Your individual looks like this unidentified Stink Bug posted to Insetologia.  Perhaps Cesar Crash will write in with an identification.  The hatchlings might be Coreid Bugs, but we are not certain.

Hemipteran Hatchlings

The young one is diferent from the adult MY mistake
