Stink Bugs

6242 Please help me for identification this insect. I don’t know that this insect is harmful or not. I have see this insect on green gram. haumangarh, Rajasthan

Number 6242 – These are stink bugs (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Pentatomidae); this family includes both plant feeders and predatory species. Usually, when you see a group of them at the same place, they likely are plant feeders, as predatory species tend to be solitary in habit. Your specimens bear a superficial resemblance to one known as the Bagrada bug (Click here), but they may be something different.
