Brown marmorated stinkbug (Halyomorpha halys) is nearly 3/4 inch long, mottled brown in color, with two light bands on each antenna, and a smooth edge between eye and ‘shoulder.’ There are alternating white and brown spots on abdomen edge beyond wings. Nymphs have white bands on their tibia. Damage caused by this insect can be mistaken for cork spot.
