Edessa meditabunda (Fabricius, 1794) - (brown-winged stink bug)

This bug is a pest of legumes and various other crops in temperate parts of South America. It has been also reported from other parts of South and Central America. Apart from attacking pods and developing fruits, it might also feed on the stems of the host plants. The bug is a common soybean pest, but is polyphagous and also infests other species of Fabaceae, Solanaceae like eggplants, as well as cotton, tobacco, sunflower, papaya, and grape.
