Pentatomoidea Checklist: Shield Bugs & Stink Bugs

Pentatomoidea Checklist: Stink Bugs & Shield Bugs

This page consists of a personal checklist of all Shield Bugs and Stink Bugs under the superfamily Pentatomoidea. Most have yet to be identified, and some could be misidentified. Please let me know in the comments below if you spot any mistakes.

All photos are of live subjects shot in the field, with the dorsal view selected where available. Click on individual photos for larger views and views from other angles. As specimens were not collected, identifications were done purely based on photographs and may not be 100% accurate.
