  1. I'm not very good with insects but this does look rather like Dolycoris baccarum as well, except that yours does not appear hairy. With so many different genera, not easy! Posted 2 months ago
    1. The shape of the pronotum could fit on Dolycoris, you are right, although not hairy. I was thinking that it could be Carpocoris purpureipennis/pudicus (but very far from 100% sure...) Thank you, Claire! Cheers Posted 2 months ago, modified 2 months ago
      1. Not Dolycoris - have a look at Codophila varia ... will double check later ... Posted 2 months ago
        1. Yep! I've identified it as Codophila varia, Thank you!
