I live right on the middle of Mexico and i found this guy in my patio. It’s trying to get up, i helped him a couple times but i dont know if there is something wrong with his legs or what he may be needing, never seen this before, maybe family with chinches? He must be the size of my thumb

Stink Bug

Try as we might, we have been unable to find a visual match to your Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae online.  Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck with an identification to the genus or species level.

Karl Identifies Stink Bug
Hi Daniel and Intriguedly yours:
It looks like Edessa sp.; probably E. reticulata. Edessa is a very large genus with many similar species, but I think E. reticulata is a pretty close match to the posted image. Regards, Karl
