Description:

I spotted this shield bug today on a flowering Vibernum tinus in my garden. Approx length 1.0 - 1.2cm. I think it may be a Green Shield bug in its winter colouring (it resembles a photo of a winter specimen on the British Bugs website), but I haven't seen this previously so I'm not sure.
