Euschistus conspersus Uhler, 1897 - (consperse stink bug)

This stink bug is a common pest of orchards and other crops in western North America. The fruits are often attacked, e.g. feeding on tomato causes dark or yellow pinpricks on the developing fruits. The adults overwinter on the ground in leaf litter or under weeds and become active in spring. Females lay eggs in batches of around 20-25 on the underside of the leaves. There is one generation in northern parts of western North America and two in California.
