Bug for ID Western Sahara southern green shieldbug?

Could anyone confirm that this is southern green shieldbug Nezara viridula? Taken in Western Sahara 2019.

I can't confirm, Steve, but to my eyes it looks spot on for the final instar nymph of Southern Green Shieldbug as shown in http://www.britishbugs.org.uk/hetero..._viridula.html

Agree looks identical to the Nezara nymphs I've seen in London.

Thanks. It does look good I just wasn't sure if there are other similar species that I'm not away of.
