Saturday Critters – Green vegetable bug or Green soldier bug?

 It seems that the basil from my balcony has attracted many creatures this year. Spiders, ants, flies, bees and today this creature that almost could not be seen among the green leaves of basil.

I have no idea how it got here and what kind of beetle  is. It can be green vegetable bug(Nezara viridula) or green soldier bug (Chinavia hilaris). They are quite similar. All I know is that it smell awful. Thank God it didn’t enter the house!!

I share this photo with my Saturday Critters Challenge.
