Description

Comments from Martin Lagerwey: one nymph molting, the emerging nymph will be second instar and is entirely red for a few hours till its black markings appear. This group is a stink bug.  I think it is the predatory stink bug based on the 'eyelashes' seen on the eggs. Two photos included with this observation.
