Pentatomoidea Checklist: Shield Bugs & Stink Bugs

on
7 February 2019

Pentatomoidea is a superfamily comprised of shield bugs and stink bugs. They have a well-developed scutellum, and usually have antennae with five segments. The tarsi usually have two or three segments.

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.
