Stink Bug (Euschistus spp.). Named for their ability to exude a foul smelling substance from a pore on either side of their thorax, Stink bugs are good fliers that can be recognized by a large triangular scutellum on their back. "These bugs often have symbiotic relationships with bacteria that aid the insect in the production of nutrients" (Dexter Sear).
