[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After a short break, I'm back at TN and probably have missed a lot of interesting pictures.

The colours of this late specimen are bleached out and not so intensive as in fresh animals.
But due to this it is well adapted to the autumn colours.

The species is
- Graphosoma lineatum
- family: Pentatomidae

German: Streifenwanze

Species information
G. lineatum is a mediterranean species which prefers warm and dry habitats. In the last years, it spread to the north in Germany but is still missing in the northern parts. Here, in the Ruhrgebiet, where it finds its northern limits the species is rather rare.
