These frisky black beauties were scampering around on raspberry bushes in Port Coquitlam, BC, Ca.
They weren’t very numerous, and have been hard to find since these photos were taken.
They move like lady bugs (less cute factor), and were active in full August sun in early afternoon.
You guys run a terrific site. Thanks in advance for any help help. Or, just enjoy the photos:-)
cheers, Storm Vos-Browning
This is an immature Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae. Immature insects can often be difficult to properly identify to the species level. We found a matching image on BugGuide that indicates it is most likely a member of the genus Chlorochroa.
