Pentatomidae

Common Names:Stink Bug, Shield Bug

Description:The scutellum body is typically half of an inch long, green or brown color, usually trapezoidal in shape, giving this family the name 'shield bug'[2] . The tarsi are 3-segmented. The forewings of stink bugs are called hemelytra, with the basal half thickened while the apex is membranous (as are the hindwings).

Comments: The stink bug, also called stinkbug, derives its name from their tendency to eject a foul smelling glandular substance secreted from pores in the thorax when disturbed; in some species the liquid contains cyanide compounds with a rancid almond scent. This is a form of antipredator adaptation.

They also are commonly eaten in Laos, and are regarded as delicious due to their extremely strong odor. The insects are sometimes pounded together with spices and a seasoning to prepare cheo, a paste mixed with chilies and herbs.
