Codophila varia (Fabricius, 1787)
Family: Pentatomidae
Tribe: Carpocorini
Distribution: Mediterranean, Middle East.

This is a polyphagous species, found on Compositae and Umbelliferae.
This species is very close to Carpocoris pudicus and C. mediterraneus. But the edge of pronotum are more round on Codophila, especially near the neck, and the head is longer. The two spots on the bottom of the scutellum are more distinct too than on Carpocoris.

Photo taken on Ikaria island, with a monopod, like many of my insects shots.

Hi Catherine
When I saw this pictre I thought a scenario like this: The bug gave a hug to plant and says: "This is mine! I never give anybody!" :)

Very clear clean and sharp image. Bravo and TFS.

Hallo Catherine.

Een mooie foto van deze wants.
Prima van scherpte, details zijn goed te zien en mooie kleuren.
Beetje onooglijke beestjes maar als je ze zo in close up ziet, dan zie je de fijne tekening en mooie kleuren van ze.
Prettig weekend.
