[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lesser known backyard bugs:

The assembled 4-6 mm larvae are Two-spined stinkbugs (Heteroptera; Pentatomidae; Picromerus bidens (L.); Zweispitzwanze; Punaise épineuse). They are exposed to the sun on a Aegopodium leaf. As predators they hunt for insect larvae, caterpillars or beetle grubs and suck on their juices together.

ID: larvae are often looking very different compared to adults. Here you see a last larva of the same species. The depicted larvae for instance show no traces of the mighty prothoracal spines that characterize the adults, presented earlier. The only possibility for ID seemed to me the book E. Wachmann et l. 2007. Wanzen, Vol. 4 that also shows photographs of larval stages. Two spined-stinkbugs occur widely in Europe and throughout Asia to Japan

Hi Dietrich,
Thanks for the information. Great composition and nice idea with a lot of details. I posted a similar insect days ago, but I didn`t know what kind of insect it was.
TFS.

Hi Dietrich,
ich bin dann mal zurück ... ;-)
Lange Pause bei TN, aber scheinbar kann ich nicht ohne ...
Und freue mich sehr noch so viele "alte" Bekannte anzutreffen. Das hier ist ein typisches meyerd-backyard-Foto.
So viele auf einem Haufen, und so unterschiedlich in der Größe, sehr interessant, gefällt mir.

Danke schön und liebe Grüße aus dem Allgäu

Lieber Dieter,
Welch eine Versammlung! Sie scheinen aber verschiedene Grössen zu haben, sind wahrscheinlich in verschiedenen Entwicklungsstufen. Die ausgewachsenen hast Du uns ja schon gezeigt mit einem "mémorablen" Bild.
Dass Du Markus als Skorpionsfliege siehst, da muss ich ja schmunzeln :-)
Hoffe es geht Dir gut und schicke liebe Grüsse
Anne
