I am familiar with the Green Stink Bug, the
Brown Stinkbug and the colors of that Harlequin Stinkbug, who is happier
amongst members of the Cabbage Family than Tomato or Bean and who is
more likely to be spotted down where the Wild Blackberry grow.
The new Stinkbug looks a little like
the adult Bean Beetle, only his carapace is harder, his eyes beadier, he is
infinitely astute, and he is very quick witted. His colors are yellows and
reds, his legs black, and I get the sense that he has been called in by
other Stinkbug to reduce me to Jellied Eel.
