This week yet another arthropod from the research annex. I found this Consperse Stink Bug just outside the annex as I was waiting for one of my bioassays to finish. This insect is native to North America but like many pentatomids can build up on wild hosts before invading orchards late in the season. Mouse over the photo to show a top view of the stinkbug.
