Yellow-spotted Stink Bug

Yellow-spotted Stink Bug (Erthesina fullo, 麻皮蝽).

A common little October critter: it is not shy and it is not fast. In scientific and gardening literature, the most common epithet applied to this shield bug is 'polyphagous', for its fairly indiscriminate taste in the plants it devours.
