Box Bug

Hi Richard, the Box Bug is new to me I have never seen one. Having looked carefully at both I think you might be right, Regards Chris.

Box Bug

Hi Chris, the Box Bug (G.acuteangulatus) has a narrower abdomen than C. marginatus and the 'shoulders' on the pronotum are more pointed. (you were still quicker on the draw!)
