Anasa tristis

Anasa tristis

Anasa tristis of the family Coreidae is a major pest of squash and pumpkins, and is a vector of Yellow Vine Decline disease. These bugs can emit an unpleasant odor when disturbed.

This is the "squash bug" of North America, but properly it is known as Orange-tipped Leaf-footed Bug since "squash bug" is a name applied to any common Coreidae that include Cucurbita among their host plants – in Europe for example the Dock Bug (Coreus marginatus) is "the" squash bug.
