Just caught this shot of a new bug in the garden. Been away, haven't posted much.

Thanks Brian~
It's a sweet potato bug, a new introduction around here.

Nice captures. Why were these introduced to the area?

Thanks Orion for your comment. No idea why the introduction of the species but commonly new species are introduced accidentally. Have these in Malaysia?

Thanks Phil. This is the first time I have seen this one so I googled it to find that out myself. Seems like the damage isn't too bad. I have only seen one. I was away for a few weeks so the weeds grew in my vegetable garden and that is where I found it.
