Shieldbug ID? (Cambs, UK) (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi All
Think this is a Green Shieldbug - Palomena prasina. Based on the dark membrane.
Though according to Brock, this should be early in the season and this was just the opther week.
So I thught I'd check it through with the experts here.
Yours, Gareth

I've just received my copy of Brock and looked at Common Green Shieldbug - not quite sure what he means by early season! Attached one from 5th September
