Your letter to the bugman: hi my friend sent me this bug he thought was really pretty and i wanted to help identify it for him but i couldnt for the life of me figure out what the lil guy was!!!
my friend said it didnt jump or fly at all. it just crawled around
and if i had to guess it could be like a nymph of something maybe???
(these are my friends images)
How you want your letter signed: charlie
This little guy is a hatchling Heteropteran or True Bug, and we are pretty certain it is a hatchling Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae. It might not be possible to provide a species as nymphs can be difficult to identify with certainty.
THANKS SO MUCH
Me n him were goin crazy trying 2 figure it out haha!!! We thought it might have been a stink bug but we werent sure because we only came across brown stinkbug nymphs in our search i think, none that looked like this.
Its nice 2 know definitely thats what it was!!! Thanks a big bunch
