That is a Coreid ...Leaf footed bug...some folks call them Shield bugs due to body shape and others call them stink bugs.



Auburn, NY

These are not Stink Bugs. Stink Bugs smell and are a nuisance. They are two different species. These are Broad Leaf-Footed Bugs yes, but not stinks bugs.

You are correct Gilliansara....coreids are not stink bugs. A portion of my post got lost. The original : ....and some folks call them stinkbugs, but the two are not one in the same.
