Jellied Eel

 I am familiar with the Green Stink Bug, the Brown Stinkbug and the colors of that Harlequin Stinkbug, who is happier amongst members of the Cabbage Family than Tomato or Bean and who is more likely to be spotted down where the Wild Blackberry grow.

The new Stinkbug looks a little like the adult Bean Beetle, only his carapace is harder, his eyes beadier, he is infinitely astute, and he is very quick witted. His colors are yellows and reds, his legs black, and I get the sense that he has been called in by other Stinkbug to reduce me to Jellied Eel.
