Another lantern bug, L-B (though it probably does not stand for the same L-B that Guy is alluding to). This one was on a Casuarina

Think we're considerably closer to the right colour compared to L-B's version - BTW - saw 19 of them on a single tree the other day - most other bugs seem to have disappeared, but these are all over the place.
FYI - have seen a couple of smaller ones as well, so think my first picture must be a different type of (Lantern) Bug

One to beware of when walking on the waterpipe path parallel with the cable road to Pak Kok. These ones are definitely alive - put your finger in the hole and poke it around a bit if you don't believe me.

It was photographed by hand-held, flashed macro mode on the side of the road in Tai Peng "Main Square" during my morning hike. 2 inches long, this specimen lost part of its wing cover, revealing its bright-gold & black wings.

This beautiful bug, also called "HK Lantern Fly", made it onto an official "HK Insects" stamp in the year 2000.

On the left, with open wings, borrowed from http://www.InsectCompany.com.

Bug for today......

Tallow Stink Bug (Erthesina fulle) - very common throughout Lamma on a variety of trees & bushes although has been conspicuous by it's absence since the weather got a little cooler - grows to about 2.5cm.
Is able to repel predators by ejecting a fine stream of obnoxious liquid from special coxal glands. They are plant sap suckers & lay smallish clumps of large eggs. :coffee:

Actually, <i>Erthesina fullo</i>. One of my pet hates; they lay eggs on on drying laundry, with unpleasant results if you don't notice them inside your underwear.

Another post after midnight, Guy!

Go to bed and give the nocturnal bugs some quiet time to creep & crawl!

And don't let the bed bugs bite!
But after getting so close to this Stink Bug while shooting this great photo, even the bed bugs will avoid you...

Sorry Alan, yr quite right once again - eyesight not so good these days.

But is it this Stink Bug, or the Lychee Stink Bug that normally lays the eggs on laundry? Which I agree is most annoying, even if the young bugs are very bright & beautifully coloured.

Well, I looked it up, and didn't find anything under the original spelling so worked it out. I'm not sure about the common names, <A href="http://www.ccs-hk.org/DM/butterfly/Bugs/Hemiptera/Hemiptera.html">this page</a> mentions them and similar HK bugs. He says <i>Erthesina fullo</i> is the "Hong Kong Shield Bug".

Well, Erthesina fullo is definitely the Tallow Stink Bug according to HK Animals.
The Order is: Heteroptera (Plant Bugs), and;
the Family is: Pentatomidae (Shield or Stink Bugs)

The Lychee Stink Bug (Tessaratoma papillosa) being the one that lays the eggs in yr laundry (most likely) is as follows:

A typical Shield Bug is the Blue Shield Bug (Calliphara stollii) shown in DSCN7675A on the first page of this forum - which incidentally is largely green, but it seems that when they die, they turn Blue.
There is another Blue Shield Bug (Calliphara nobilis) illustrated in HK Animals, which is different to the Stollii.

But there is a Green Shield Bug (Nezara viridula) which is green & a smaller version of the Lychee Stink Bug shown above - go figure
