this stark green body and black eyed beetle was found in Mumbai city, India in 2010 November month. it has six legs and a pair of antenna. it has a phony set of smaller eyes just above its real eyes. its size is very small, about less than 5mm. this image is a super macro image.
CLOSED: what kind of beetle is this ?
Posting one pic at a time is how it's done. You're doing fine.
It still looks like a Stink Bug to me. Let's see if Flapdoodle will weigh in.
Definitely a stink bug (Pentatomidae) -
thanks Flapdoodle for the info. and sorry for my so late response.
i couldn't access the website you mentioned as it is closed down.
but the images uploaded by RosinaBloom did the work.
now i am sure that this stink bug is :
Order: Hemiptera (he-MIP-ter-a) (Info)
Family: Pentatomidae (pen-ta-TOM-id-ee) (Info)
unfortunately, now i just can't find the device in which i stored some 5 five closeup images that i uploaded here last year.
but i will keep searching till i find them all right.
Isn't it great how we can all help solve each others' little nature mysteries!
Re: Hemiptera also known to us in New Zealand as an Australian Green Shield bug. They can leave a pungent smell on your fingers if you touch them.
