Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Halyomorpha halys

Description

Took this foul little creature out of my misery shortly after photographing it (after it dropped unceremoniously onto my desk). Unfortunately there are plenty more where it came from. I had never noticed the red spots behind the eyes until I looked at it under a hand lens (third photo). Thought the background it happened to drop onto was amusingly appropriate for iNaturalist (list of vascular plant families of the southeast).

"I found this insect in my loving room. My dog found it, actually. I saw one on my balcony about 1 month ago. I've lived here for 20 years and have never seen this before." - Joanne Lutz

Description from Wikipedia

Halyomorpha halys, also known as the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), or simply the stink bug, is an insect in the family Pentatomidae, and it is native to China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan. It was accidentally introduced into the United States, with the first specimen being collected in September 1998. The brown marmorated stink bug is considered to be an agricultural pest, and by 2010-11 had become a season-long pest in U.S. orchards.
