I saw this shield bug? in Sri Lanka. in the Sinharaja forest area in December last year.
I feel kind of helpless having to ask for help with nearly every insect exept butterflies. Does anyone know of a good site for Sri Lankan insects? Are there any books that are not too expensive than you know of that I could buy?

Thanks very much for your help.

A bit like mine then. I use it to phone folk! A very old model. As for mobile, mine, well I tend to leave it at home most days. I have some birding apps on it so I try to remember to take it with me when I go birding. I tend not to use it, its only there for emergencies, if I remember to take it with me.

Mine rarely leaves the house so is the least 'mobile' of mobiles and please Andy, what are 'apps'.......

Mine is not internet capable, no camera, just a phone!

Edit: Haven't we got this the wrong way around, we should be boasting about what our phones can do, not what they can't do
