    Why shouldn’t you answer if it‘s obviously a stink bug? I second that.

    Thank you both for answering my SOS. You saved me a lot of worry. Can see the match up, esp in coin photo. Had ruled out stink bugs due to geography, now see it's been in country of Georgia since 2015: https://agenda.ge/en/news/2019/102 . Only 4 years!

    I live in the southern area of the U.S. Those bugs are every where during the late summer / early fall. If you squish them - they stink.

    There are hundreds of stink bug species. Brown marmorated stink bug happens to be an introduced species. Some are predacious and are beneficial; some are plant feeders and can be pests of trees, plants, crops, but might not have pest status.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
