Rhaphigaster nebulosa on garden tile Yesterday an article appeared on a dutch website about Rhaphigaster nebulosa (a fairly recent arrival in the Netherlands) trying to get into our homes for winter shelter, but the article featured a photo of Halyomorpha halys (only a hand full of observations in NL, so that one is not yet a &quot;nuisance&quot;). Of course, I couldn&#039;t let that slide so I sent them some replacement images of the true R.n. :o)<br />
They decided to use this one and as I had now selected, rotated and cropped it anyway I might as well upload it here too, even if we already have images of this species ...<br />
